Current state of vpsBoard 02/04/2017Dear vpsBoard members and guests:
Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.
Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.
I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.
I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.
poomrokc posted a topic in General TalkHello , sorry for the confusing title ,I do not speak english as my first language.(and also sorry if the topic does not fit here) Problem background: I just want to create a website as a competitive program grader for my school. Like complie and run source code on the server. So below is my idea and i would like some help/suggestions before i do it,I still don't know if this will work. Mysql usage: The problem one is that i would use one of the table as my user-submission queue.When user submit a code, I first put it in this table(i suppose it put the new row in the bottom of the table?) . Python program usage: I would run a 24/7 program on my server that check every 10 second if the queue table is not empty, just run the grading process(I know how to do it) and then pop it off the queue.Then check again. PHP usage: When a person submit code, i will use php to put it on the queue table,but it may be the same time my python program is popping something off the queue table too. This is where I get confuse whether it will work or not.(Other usage of the php is just things about web interface which I had done before and know what to do) So,would this idea even work? Will it break my server or something?As a competitive programmer guy I don't know much snd will greatly appreciate any help from u guys. :) Thank you very much.
