Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Sysadmin meeting at Valencia
I don't worry too much about the lack of a recent unix release if it's rock-solid. If it works, don't break it, no problem. However I don't know of anyone using it for production OpenACS 4.x sites.
The current version of OpenACS does not work due to various reasons, but it is an effort of - i think - less than one week to get it running. Neophytos is running phigita.net on a snapshot of naviserver, but he is not really using OpenACS, but a strongly modified clone. Naviserver is well maintained but a moving target. I said a year ago or so that i will try get OpenACS running on Naviserver, once there is a new release as a reference point.
I do not see a big problem with the current situation of Aolserver. If a real problem shows up, or maintenance becomes a problem, we will move our apps to naviserver.
Going to apache is a long way, and i am not sure about the advantages, esp. when c-code modules from aolserver are involved.
i am not sure about the advantages, esp. when c-code modules from aolserver are involvedIt just seems to eliminate a lot of other moving parts; and it would make it easier for OpenACS to fit in a standard LAMP box, since aolserver seems to be the hardest thing to keep running...
19th afternoon seems to be free, after the .LRN consortium presentation ( http://aulavirtual.uv.es/ficheros/view/agendax18x19.htm ).
We can have the meeting then, and go dinner after that
