    What software does AO use

    Sorry for such a small post but I think the subject says it all. I will say it again though. Does anyone know what software AO uses?

    Let's look at the following url:
    xxx.antionline.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=228805

    The .php extention probabaly means that the pages are being parsed by the php executable. That being the case the database being used is most likley to be MySQL. And the probability is that the site is running on a [insert branding here]-x box. So the mail functionality is probably dealt with by sendmail (or something similar).

    I am obviously just a 'newb' here and I have no inside track but that would be my best guess. That said however if anyone has better information than that, I too would be interested to know.

    If your interested You can get php and MySQL (for win32) from my public ftp at:
    ftp://195.8.181.206/Programming/php/

    My guess is:

    Apache on Windows 2000.
    vBulletin powered by MySQL.

    I may be wrong but it's only a good (qualified?) guess .

    According to this article at www.insecure.org, antionline is running FreeBSD.
    I'm not sure how accurate or up to date this is, considering the latest version of FreeBSD is 4.6 to be released 6/1.
    But, surely antionline hasn't made the switch from BSD* to M$..

    lol

    Definitely php and Apache 1.3.22 as the web server (see below) and I for one wouldn't argue with netcraft (see jethro's post).

    Code:
    E:\>nc www.antionline.com 80
    GET / HTTP/1.1
    HOST: www.antionline.com
    
    
    HTTP/1.1 200 OK
    Date: Sun, 26 May 2002 21:32:55 GMT
    Content-Length: 49512
    Content-Type: text/html
    Server: Apache/1.3.22

    VBulletin powers the forums (albeit in a extremely modified form by JP), which means AO also has PHP and some form of SQL database (most likely MySQL or SQL Server 2000). The site uses Windows 2000 and IIS 5 according to Netcraft.
