What is Lampcms? ================= Lampcms is the open source high-performance web program for creating Questions/Answers website. This is similar, but not exactly the same as a traditional web forum. Question/Answer type of site is more suitable for certain types of online communities and customer support sites. This program, however can easily be adapted for creating a general purpose discussion communities where it is not required to start a thread in a form of a question but simply start a discussion of any topic while others will be able to reply (instead of "answer") to a topic as well as make comments, rate topics and earn reputation based on how other users rate their topics and replies. The program uses very flexible templating system with support for "themes" and mobile browsers. The program is written in php in object-oriented style, making it easy for developers to add new features by adding new classes or extending existing classes. The program also uses event driven design with the Subject/Observer pattern. This program is very fast and can scaled to a very large size as well as being able to handle very heavy web traffic (thousands of requests per second is possible on a single server). The NoSQL database MongoDB is used as a back-end storage, which means no matter how large your database is, the speed will always remain the same. There are never any database JOINS, all queries are simple selects and always executed blindingly fast. It is also very easy to add additional database servers as the database grows. The design of MongoDB makes it very easy to "just add another server" with almost no downtime.
