Developing Smarty application is a little tough using WYSIWYG IDEs because when using smarty template variables (such as reference to an image), it can not be represented in a WYSIWYG environment because there are no IDEs that support the SMARTY templates unless I'm mistaken.

I use Dreamweaver MX and mapped all the smarty tags and it looks OK but when you have:

<{$xoops_imageurl}/images/logo.gif>

the IDE doesn't know what to do with that. Sure, you can put absolute values there temporarily but then what's the point?

If someone can shed some light on this matter it would be appreciated

I have a site running with MySQL + PHP with 9 million records in it and it hasn't broken in two years. All the features of PQ and the others just don't apply for my needs, M does is as well or better (faster) with a smaller learning curve.


I would have to agree with you there. I've seen sites running JSP and ORACLE and it doesn't come remotely close to PHP/MySQL combo. But what about Transaction Processing. How do you deal with that since MySQL does not support it?

That was design for my mom but she still doesn't get.

I love Linux...FREEBSD is close enough :). But if you can suggest a Linux flavor that is highly accepted, that would be great also.

Also the limitation is you can't distribute MySQL with a commercial product. There is nothing stopping you from distributing instructions for downloading MySQL, or possibly even an installation script that downloads/installs MySQL (bit less certain about that) with a commercial product. You just can't ship the two together.


Thanks for that tip...I just love these loopholes.

Quote:

Further the "commercial application" limitation is in reality a "non GPL compatible license" limitation. If your application in question is GPL (eg Xoops) then all your problems go away anyway, since any XOOPS derived code must be GPL as well.


Thats a very interesting concept. But to what extent? What if I wrote my own version of XOOPS but every line of code is different. Nevertheless, it looks, smell and taste just like XOOPS? Does it have to be release as GPL? Also, copyrights...Does ONO really own the copyrights of XOOPS since it was derived from PHPNUKE?

Any particular reason you're set on RedHat for Linux? There are a lot of other well supported distributions.

Here we run various combinations of stable/testing/unstable Debian, which is very nice to manage and maintain. I hear Knoppix is a good choice if the Debian install scares you a bit or you want a bit more "pretty".

As for Postgres... At the risk of starting a flamewar, I personally find Postgres a pain to admin compared to MySQL, and for the type of applications I see people using it (I work at a webhost) the advantages it does have never come into play.


I'm not trying to sell anyone anything here. I just want to know what everyone's experience are with other solutions. I'm not set on Redhat. It cost money now if you are using it commericially. Same with mySQL. There are people that want to pay for Linux/MySQL and some people that don't want to. I just happen to be one of those cheap fools that don't want to if I go commercial and I'm working on very low margins. I just want to know what everyone's experience are with FREEBSD and PostGreSQL and I thank you for sharing your experience with PostGreSQL.

I love the threaded view. Thats the only reason why I don't use other BBs. XOOPS Forum is not too light nor too heavy. It's just right.

Actually, I was referring to MS ACCESS, the database. MyODBC allows you to use another database such as ACCESS as the front end API to connect to MySQL, the backend database.


So how does that relate to his original question? He wants XOOPS to use ACCESS the database. He doesn't want to use ACCESS to utilize mySQL as the database.

Hi CBLUE,

I was playing around with it (...XoopsShop that is ) and I noticed that when you checkout it ask to login in again. I would think that it would pickup the original authentication when you first login. Was this intentional to ask you to login again? If so, why?

Also, do you know if the module inherits XOOPS theme?

Tanks,
Rico

Redhat and MySQL bad for us...

With the current structure for Redhat and MySQL it is not a cost effective solution anymore. It cost more money now to use Redhat vs Win2003 server. Also, MySQL isn't really free if you're not using it for commercial use. Sure you can pay for it if you want to but why when there are other solutions that are just as good maybe better and it is free.

I'm now leaning towards FREEBSD and POSTGRESQL. Problem is we don't have that middle layer to support POSTGRESQL and would be happy if there is any news in terms of where the CORE developers are going with this.

Also, anybody using FREEBSD with XOOPS. If so, do you like the results?

Thanks for the info. I looked at ASPNUKE and it only supports SQL server. Unfortunately, I cannot afford a SQL license to support an Intranet site so I guess I am going back to MYSql. Thanks for the info.

It also look like XOOPS is the best designed system anyway.

Well all you have to do in ASP is change the connection string information and all the code should work as long as ASPNUKE are not calling any stored procedures.
