NAME README - Rehash ("Revised and Enhanced Homebrewed Automatic Storytelling Homepage") DESCRIPTION Rehash is a fork of the last open-source release of Slash, which was the basis of basis of slashdot.org. Rehash is a partial rewrite of Slash to increase functionality, improve usability, and an incremental port to modern versions of Apache, perl, and mod_perl. It is designed for high reliability and scalability, with integrated support for MySQL cluster, multi-frontend support, and a strong adherence to the MVC development methodology, clearly abstracting user-facing code from backend management. In addition, rehash is designed to be fast, flexible, and highly scalable and should scale to almost any load put to it. Furthermore, with support for AppArmor, parameter filtering, and query hardening, rehash is resistant to both SQL exploitation, and server compromise through the frontend. As always, efforts continue to improve this wherever possible. As for proof of its robustness, rehash powers soylentnews.org, and its ancestor powered slashdot.org (which is one heck of a torture test). See INSTALL for information about installing Rehash, including hardware and software requirements. Read that document carefully, and follow the instructions as precisely as possible. Also see INSTALL for information on upgrading from previous versions of Rehash, Slash or slashcode. As noted in the FAQ, please send any bug reports, and subscribe to mailing lists, at Rehash's github page. https://github.com/soylentnews/rehash DOCUMENTATION The .pod documentation included with Rehash can be read with the "perldoc" program, included with perl, or translated using one of the many "pod2*" translators.
