DESCRIPTION
- This is the README file for Slash, release 1.0.7. Please read
- all documentation carefully. The various documents explain the
- database schema, the various fields in the database, and some of
- the reasoning behind the design of the schema, installation and
- setup.
-
- Please see INSTALL for database upgrade instructions. Code
- upgrading is simple: use the new code in the new distribution,
- and make sure that you have the new values and configurations in
- your copies of slashdotrc.pl and httpd.conf. If you neglect to
- upgrade these last two, your site likely will not work.
-
- Also, double-check every line of CHANGES to see if anything has
- changed to affect your site (like a change from Mail::Sender to
- Mail::Sendmail, for example).
-
- Note: This page looks best in a browser (the HTML version of it
- is in the docs/ directory). You can print it out, but some of
- the ASCII illustrations may get munged in printing, but the
- directions will certainly appear good enough to read.

What is Slash?
- Maybe this is a dumb question, but why not get this answered?
- Slash is a database-driven news and message board, using
- mod_perl and MySQL. It has been programmed, more so recently, to
- use persistance for a good deal of its variables to increase
- speed and efficiency. Slash has all the features and more that
- you'd ever want in a bulletin-board/message-board system. You
- can customize it to anything you want, give it any appearance
- that you want. This can mostly be done via data. Slash is a
- database beast in the true sense. The Slash code is distributed
- under the GNU General Public License (see COPYING).

Hardware/Software
- The live Slashdot used five separate servers for its high hit
- count. This is not a target number for all Slash sites. You can
- run all of Slash on one server, or throw it on 20 servers. The
- more load you want it to handle, the more hardware you'll want.
- Slash consists of three main parts: database, codebase, and web
- server. How those are divvied up amongst servers is up to your
- own creative planning. Slash runs on Linux but is not Linux
- specific. Whatever runs Apache/mod_perl and MySQL will run
- Slash. Slash does have some MySQL-specific SQL statements
- contained within, but it's not entirely impossible to run it on
- another RDBMS with some modifications.
