    Slow As Molasses


    The only problem I have with PHP-Nuke is the fact that it is very very slow. Poor coding techniques and bad queries contribute to this. If they get that issue settled then it will become unstoppable.

    There's Something Else


    I've been following it's development since the 2.X versions. I feel minor changes are needed to be made in order for it to be much more secure. For example, the Admin users are separate from the "regular" users in the database. My main beef with this is because the "regular" users' passwords are encoded with MD5. The Admin passwords are stored as PLAIN TEXT. I do not understand why it is not simply encrypted as well. My other problems, like in your post, relate to speed. Although the PHP is a bit drawn out in parts, that isn't the big problem. It just seems like it is thrashing the database. I've read reports from several sites of annoying database timeouts. The current trend of development has been churning out slower and slower code. Eventually, it will need a complete rewrite, plain and simple. It needs to break away from being just a knockoff of ThatWare (which it was originally based upon). That's my two cents.

    Does PHP-Nuke installation require that the database _need_ to be named "nuke"?


    Or is PHP-Nuke smart enough so that you can use your own database name during the installation?

    Geeklog is great and pretty easy to deal with, as well.
    visit
    <a href="http://geeklog.org">Geeklog</a>
    for details.
    I had this up and running in no time.

    Nuke is not so great


    It looks great at first, but it is buggy and insecure. A child coud hack it.

    great 'cept 4 the bug's & security


    phpnuke on my box (windows, with php4.0.4) has a lot of bugs like: undefined variable, undefined constant, etc.
    security has to be tightened.
    but it is a great system.

    If you can run servlets and JSP on your provider don't forget to try Jetspeed at http://jakata.apache.org.. Right now it isn't as easy to set up as Nuke but *much* more powerfully.

    Re: Slow As Molasses


    Well, it's an open source project with (in my own mind) no project coordination. I looked at the code, and being a programmer for over 16 years, i can say that it's not the best code i've ever seen. MySQL in the hands of a pro-code cutter, can be as fast as you want it to be even on a slow server, but the logic flow, queries, and code structure are just an absolute cluster F**K which makes the scripts just too unstable to use on a server.

    Re: Question?


    Try installing allthemes.tar.gz
    <br />
    <br />
    Or change the default theme in config.php to a theme you have in the Themes directory.
    <br />
    <br />
    Make sure the files and directories have the right permissions (666 for files, 777 for directories, and 777 for contents of the cache directory).
    <br />
    <br />
    This may sort it, if its the same issue I had.

    Re: Databases


    Done. What I need to do to not get the error of "Warning: MySQL Connection Failed: Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: NO)" or any other errors. I read the documentation of the program, but that is not for beginners of PHP.
