Slashcode 2.0

software development


I was wondering if anyone is running a Slashcode site and what they had to do to get it running…

Dreamhost doesn’t really support slashcode. This is for several reasons; mainly that it requires mod_perl (which we like, and use for a lot of internal stuff, but which doesn’t scale well to a shared hosting environment) and a LOT of Perl modules etc. It’s also fairly server intensive. Unless your needs are very large scale (in which case you might check out we’d recommend phpnuke or ‘nope’. Also, I believe some people are running PHP Slashcode, although I’m not 100% sure this works on our system. I know for sure that Nuke works pretty well on our system.
