Community systems

apps

#1

Hello everyone,

I run a small community website ( ~100 visitors / 400-500 page views a day) which mainly features “profiles” (biographies with a picture) and an event/birthday calendar. The whole thing is self-written in PHP/MySQL and a bit of a pain to administrate - people email me their profiles, birthdays, events and I enter them into the database for them.

Therefore, I have been thinking of switching to a community system like PostNuke, Geeklog, etc where users can administrate and publish (after my approval) their own data. I have no previous experience with community/portal systems at all though and was wondering if anyone could recommend one? I’d also be curious how heavy those kind of systems are on conueries usage - I only have the “Crazy Domain Insane” plan.

Thanks! :slight_smile:

I like the new phpNuke 6.5…

They incorporated phpBB 2.04 so it has a ncie forum too.

I’m running a few nuke sites from Dreamhost with no problems.
the main site serves about 1,700 pages a day with 525 members.

The Database is up to 17megs with over 5,000 messages in the forum… MySQL is using just under 4million conqueries a month.

Would you mind posting the urls for the Nuke sites you host on DH?

I’m experimenting with PostNuke right now and I’d appreciate seeing PHPNuke in action on the DH.

Thanks!
