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

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.

YASS: Democracy Now!

Democracy Now! a U.S. based morning TV and radio news program launched it new site, based on a heavily modified cvs version of slash. (Hacked together and hosted by openflows.)
As they become more comfortable with the system, and people on staff there get the hang of how slash works, we hope to add in the more community/interactive features of slash. For now it is simply a content management system, in the future it will become much more.

In just the first few days the traffic and audience response has been overwhelming.
stats from the second day the site was live:
