Question: RSS Importer Pligg 2.0.2
Answer: provided by jhawkin 16 days ago
- 0 + The importer can't reach the feed without the http:// so examine shouldn't work. You might try editing the url from the edit button in the feeds list. This isn't making much sense to me.

Starting to sound like a server issue somewhat. Most of my stuff runs on Wild West Servers (Go Daddy) but I have installed on other servers without a hitch.

Could I get you to turn off verify URLs from admin submit temporarily? Just grasping at straws here.

And one more question. You can submit a post normally can't you?

Question: block all subdomain of www.domain.com
Answer: provided by jhawkin 21 days ago
- 0 + If you're wanting to block the spammer's ISP then htaccess is the answer but if you're trying to block the link's domain then that has to be done through the 'ban url' mechanism within Pligg. I've never tried a wildcard in there but I think that's what is needed to block all sub-domains.

Question: How many users/traffic can pligg support at any one time?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 22 days ago
- 0 + I think the limit would be dependent on your database size and capability. A few of my sites have several thousand users (mostly disabled spammer accounts) with no problems. I keep those accounts there as it's not real easy to delete a user and keeping the disabled spammer account helps lower the spam potential somewhat.

The overhead for user accounts is pretty minimal.

I have one site that is nearing 20,000 posts (but just 66 user accounts) and it runs without a whimper.

- 0 + Well, remember, reddit and digg are probably running on a cluster or two of dedicated unix (Linux) servers and cdn servers. Their databases are probably on one cluster and whatever they use as a program on another cluster with their cdn up in the cloud.

Their software is most likely all hand written and their whole focus is on serving up the one site instead of 3 dozen websites, another several dozen databases, dns, email and assorted applications and a control panel like is found on most server accounts that would run a typical Pligg install.

Question: submit new link with confirmation

- 1 + Story Moderation Module will give you that functionality!

Question: [ASK] Setting verification email
Answer: provided by jhawkin 22 days ago
- 0 + I don't think there's any way to verify 'configuration changes' via email. What is the situation and why would you need that function?

Email notification is there for some normal user 'events' (built in) and posts (if you add the story moderation module).

What you want would require storing configuration changes temporarily and then sending a email. Can be done but would require a good bit of custom coding for very little benefit that I can see.

Question: my pligg sites are not accepting submissions

- 0 + You should realize that different IP doesn't mean different server.

But I'm starting to think you're having server issues.

Looks like you might be on GoDaddy servers. Did you use the one button install?

- 1 + So you didn't use the APP installer built into GoDaddy's control Panel.

Why don't you consider doing a backup if you did any customizations and removing everything. Kill the database. Re-install from Softalicious or whatever is there in the Hosting Control Panel and see if your problems go away.

I've installed this stuff hundreds of times now and the best way is to use the one button installers built into some better control panels. My first Choice anyway.

The next best is to install from a know good download via FTP. The last is to use a File transfer mechanism from the Host's CP (I usually won't do that unless the host is very economical).

I can vouch for GoDaddy being able to support Pligg. Most of my Pligg sites run from Wild West Domains (GoDaddy) sites as I'm a reseller there.

This is pretty much what I'd do next!

- 1 + Okay... okay. This is getting ridiculous!!!

If you didn't do any customizations and/or don't have anything at all you're afraid to lose in your database or configuration settings then don't bother with the backup!

But I'd do the rest of what I suggested. Kill the whole mess and do a one button install from Softalicious or what ever 'One Button' Installer is provided.

I don't know what else to tell you there.

I do know that the GoDaddy control panels usually have a 'One Button' Installer.

And I do know that they work well!!!

I'm a little amazed that you are hung up on this Backup/No Backup issue when the solution might be right there in the tasks outlined right after that!

Just make sure that your CP offers Pligg 2.0.2 and then do it!!!! That's how it's done here at my shop. I don't hand install anything I don't have to.
