New Custom Forum Software?

Postby Chris » Thu Oct 28, 2004 9:06 am

With all these server configuration issues, not only is this forum producing several errors, but the RPG has also broken.

As many people know, I don't like MySQL and would like to stop using it. What does that mean? ;)

I'm thinking about creating a new custom forum of my own, and am thinking about writing it in Perl. Instead of MySQL, I'll use flat files which I prefer.

What about the old forum posts? Of course, they will be converted. I wouldn't want to lose these posts. :D

What do you all think? If I get a positive response, I'll start work on it ASAP.

Re: the RPG. It's broken now anyway, but I'll try and convert it to Perl if you all want. ;)

Or, you can always go to a paid host. jk (Besides, you just noted in hostedall that it's fixed. ;))

Well, wait for GameSpy to be 100% functional and error free, then see what to do from there. I think it would be awesome.

OK, Perl really is screwed... I take back that "fixed" message. :(

This may have to go on hold... :(

I was about to say that you could try to code in PHP, since it can use flat files, too, but that was until I realized that chances are you don't know any PHP. :P

Well, either way, if you ever need people to test things out every now in then I'd be happy to help.

PHP is quite similar to Perl, but I don't like it. ;)

There might not be a need to create a new forum now that the errors have gone, and now that the RPG is coming back together. For now I'll probably continue to work on this phpBB forum! :D
