Ask SlashCode: Multiple Instances

posted by Krow on 10:42 AM June 10th, 2003   Printer-friendly   Email story
Please indulge a beginner.
I currently have slashcode setup on a single domain with its own IP address (wwwntm.biz) for testing purposes. Here is my dilemma.
I am setting up a community similar to yahoo/geocities. It will be www.newthoughtcommunity.net and the individual communities will be sub-domains of this domain ex; community1.newthoughtcommunity.net, community2.newthoughtcommunity.net etc
Residents of the communities will be set up as users ex; http://community1.newthoughtcommunity.net/user1, http://community1.newthoughtcommunity.net/user2 etc.

Directory is: /home /newthoughtcommunity
/community1
/community2
I know that slash can be setup with virtual domains, but can sub domains have there own instance.
I need each community to have their own slash.
Also. When I set up a new instance of slash for a virtual domain, do I use the same database and administrator with a new virtual user when I run DBI::Password?
Thank you for any help you can offer

Ask SlashCode: section as subdomain (2.2.5 based install)

posted by Krow on 09:44 AM June 6th, 2003   Printer-friendly   Email story
Hello,

I have a slashcode version 2.2.5(*) based site under my command, for which an extension is planned, that would fit well in an isolated (isolate=1) section with a few modified templates put in the section-page (like header;etc;default).

I managed to configure a second virtual host that uses the same SlashVitualUser directive as the main-server with the sectionname as subdomain (etc.myslash.company), overriding the rootdir-variable using SlashSetVar and enforcing the section using SlashSetForm:

SlashSetVar rootdir //etc.myslash.company
SlashSetForm section etc

Everything works fine so far...
I just wondered if it is safe to use the same slash-site (db and all) within two virtual-hosts. And I wondered the more if there isn't an easier way to accomplish this.

As far as I understood mod_perl there shouldn't be any problem, but asking the masters seldom hurts but the professional pride...

* I did fix the released security-holes!.

tia,
kind regards
tomte

Barrapunto.com see the light with 2.2.6

It has been hard, but after playing a little with all the configuration, we have reached a good balance in Barrapunto.com and now our users are very happy, the journals start to be filled with contents and the editors now are more active. We feel that the key was to serve the images from a differente machine, something that points to saturation in the connections for our main machine.

Now the performance is very good with 70.000 pages/day and a PIII with 1 GB RAM with Slash and MySQL and a simple PC serving the images.

Ask SlashCode: Translation Guide?

posted by Krow on 06:07 PM June 1st, 2003   Printer-friendly   Email story
Is there any guide on how to translate slashcode (interface, at least the one seen by the users) to some other language?

Is the slashcode written so that can be easily translated to some other languages (UTF-8 not required) ?

Thanks!

YASS: Yet Another Security Site

posted by Krow on 12:03 PM May 26th, 2003   Printer-friendly   Email story
YASS should probably stand for "Yet another Security Site" LOL. I've been playing around with slash for about a week now, and finally have the beginnings of a site running. Feel free to pop in, drop some comments, break stuff and generally see what goes. The more participation I see, the more work I'll put into making it a nice site. A good name might help... now there's an idea for a poll.
