After looking at the different options for a forum, it looks like SMF is the one that best fits my needs.
Before trying to install it, however, I want to be sure the requested software packages are already installed on the server.
From the SMF Installation Guide :
># the GNU Aspell and its dictionaries for spell checking support.
# PHP 4.3.0 or higher, with the following set in php.ini:
* the max_input_time directive is set to a value of at least 30.
* the post_max_size and upload_max_filesize directives are set to the size of the largest attachments you wish to be able to upload.
* the memory_limit directive is set to at least 8M.
* the upload_tmp_dir must be set to a valid directory.
Now, is Aspell installed ? With (at least) english and italian dictionaries ?
With regards to php, max_input_size, from phpinfo(), seems to be set at -1. I wonder, does it mean that it is set at infinity, or disabled, or what ?
Moreover, I can't seem to be able to find memory_limit in the output from phpinfo(), any idea ?
post_max_size is set at 55MB, more than enough, but upload_max_filesize is at 2MB; is it possible to have it set at, say, 5MB ?
And, most important (since it's the only real requirement in the above list), upload_tmp_dir is unset (that is, it has a no value value)... What about it ?
Thanks to everyone, and I want to say to the TCH staff that, so far , the service has been great, fast and without any problem !
PS: Just to know, what is the total connection bandwidth from the servers to the 'net ? (ya know, I'm a sysadm, I'm curious )
