Forum ubuntu-it gets a new theme and a new engine

Hi all,

after many many weeks working on forum.ubuntu-it.org, we finally done!

The forum for ubuntu-it.org has been migrated from SMF 1.X (MySQL) to PhpBB3 (PSQL). The entire work has taken more than one month, considering the huge data (almost 5GB database) to migrate.

The new theme is inspired to the ubuntu-it website and ubuntu design guidelines, hope you like it.

 

Thanks to #canonical-sysadmin to help me in tuning psql, apache, php, etc… PphBB3 (default) is not so fast with big forums as I expected.

    Congrats – glad it went well for you – we’re currently fighting ~150Gb of data, over 1 million users, Vb3 witha an out of date theme – surprisingly the biggest fight appears to be SABDFL and an insinstence on SSO – go figure …

    Guess he like’s askubuntu … I sort of do :)

    I installed Ubuntun in 2007 – joined the forum in 2007 – I’d not have asked questions in AU in 2007 … I very rarely do now either

    I asked questions in a forum then and I’d do the same today :)
