Starting to notice a very heavy load on one of my content aggregation sites that runs a huge RSS import base.

I have a few ideas, faster server, running the RSS import from a second server, moving the database to the cloud or another server, splitting RSS import into two halves or even thirds.

I figure I'd better fix this now as the other aggregator sites will probably hit this same wall. I'm thinking "reserve the hardware options 'til you need really 'em". So splitting RSS seems the best idea.

Has anyone run two instances of RSS import? Anyone have any ideas? Did I miss some other option?
In my Facebook I have the Desk Hop VNC APP. I use this with a few clients at times. My Facebook is listed in my Profile.

If you need help, are in the continental US, on a highspeed connection and a PC or Laptop, friend me then message me with your problem. I'll co-ordinate with you there.

Only Thursday nights 7PM and later , I'll pick and choose the problems and who I'll help. If this doesn't get ridiculous I'll consider extending this some.

I'm in the process of outlining a possible book or document. This is for case studies and further experience. Else this might wind up on my websites.
I've just started actually using the Revive (OpenX) ad server on Wild Well Ent. It's been there since July when I started building but I didn't have a reason to use it until managing ads got out of hand and the Linkshare limitations on only running rotating ads in one zone per page stared limiting my ad choices too much.

Wild Well runs Pligg 1.2.2 so I don't know how much help this will be for anyone else but I will say it appears to work well so far with my Linkshare ads. I'll see how it goes if I wind up with other advertising.

Any thoughts, suggestions, or questions are welcome. Keep in mind this is the first time out with this adserver. The other one I used to use (pre Pligg) was cgi and ssi based.

See it here http://www.WildWellEnt.com
I'd like to see a directory added to this site listing all the web developers / integrators (like me) who can offer paid help.

There's a WordPress Plugin to build a link directory that would probably fit our needs here. I use it on my hybrid sites.

My thinking is the developer/integrators could advertise their availability to build and repair Pligg installs. Working installs with satisfied clients might further the Pligg installed base leading to more sales for Pligg's addons.
I have WordPress 4.0 in the root and Pligg 2.0.x in a sub-directory. Each has their own databases. Just built these last night.... Nothing fancy there yet.

Was wondering if Redwine might want to take a look if it doesn't work. Maybe we could get this fixed up as a module finally and documented so others can use it.

I'll need a way to get you (Redwine) the credentials for ftp. Email?? Or something else?



I'm getting ready to engage another web server and was wondering if anybody was interested in just renting a site already built by the month or year even.

I can have a turnkey Pligg 1.2.2, Pligg 2.0.x or Wordpress 3.92 or 4.x website deployed overnight and answering as your domain as early as the next morning. You would bring your own domain pointed at my IP address.

I'll be able to provide the usual server support and a little extra help with issues. Once you're up and running well you can decide to stay or leave and just take the whole site and database with you.

Anybody see a need for this??
I'm just about at the point where I need a second webserver and was thinking about off loading the databases to Google Cloud instead which could buy me a year or two right there.

Any experiences, advice or thoughts???? My other option would be a vps server with just MySQL running or a server here at the house running over Comcast (not great).
I tried to post here a few minutes ago and received a Captcha that presented a box to enter my email address with a message about 'suspicious activity from 'this address'.

I just reloaded the Captcha again and it went away.
We need some kind of module that would traverse the stories data table looking for broken bookmarks back to the originating story. This would reduce the number of 'broken' links when Pligg is being used as a bookmarking site.

My thoughts are the module should start from the oldest post (most likely to be, broken, deleted or 'out of date'), run from a cron or pseudo-cron trigger/task and check a configurable number of posts, keep track of it's last checked story and continue from there on each successive cron trigger..

The module should be configurable to either place a failed story into 'upcoming', moderation, discard or else do nothing but email the admin with a link to the story..

The action should also be configurable for counts of failed check attempts as the referenced server downtime could cause a false trigger.
I'm getting ready to try installing the WordPress login plugin / Pligg module again. Hoping to get it working this time.

One caveat is I'm running WordPress in the root directory with Pligg answering from it's own directory via a htaccess redirect. Had to do it this way as some of my sites require WordPress running under multi-site.

I need to know the Pligg 'Salt_Length' and any other tips would be appreciated. If I get it working I'll try to document everything and make that available to everyone who needs it.

I also want to get it working with my older sites running 1.2.2 but the site I'm going to put this on runs 2.0.x.
