Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Does OpenACS Apache work?

Posted by Talli Somekh on
<i>PHPnuke ( is gaining a lot of functionality that I found attractive in OpenACS. When it has personal home pages, I'll be ready to move off, and down, to just Apache and MySQL. Every part of this system will come in Mandrake - nothing to install. </i>
Glen, I tried to check out this site to get an idea of alternative packages, but it took so long to download i gave up - twice.  tried in the morning and just now (evening).  I'm not sure why.  It's really slow.
anyway, i guess the argument of PHPnuke/MySQL vs. OpenACS/PG will soon change to PHPNuke/Interbase vs. OpenACS/PG.  When the site finally downloaded, there was a post that there will soon be a port to Interbase, which I think will be great.  More alternatives out there.
