    Non-supported Documentation in IPS4?
    One thing that has always bothered me that I'd like to get considered in the realm of IPS4 is documentation.

    I have one example and thats it.

    I recently got a new development server to Nginx. My live server consists of 1 wordpress blog, 1 xenforo site, 1 invision power board site.

    These were my Google searches to prep for the changes and their yielded results

    "wordpress nginx rules" - http://codex.wordpress.org/Nginx

    "xenforo nginx rules" - http://xenforo.com/help/friendly-urls/

    "ipb nginx rules" -


    No official documentation. I know you don't support it, but its always helpful to have a nice starting point when writing rules. After reading about 3 separate threads on IPS about Nginx, I finally wrote my own modified rules, which I've yet to test since I'm too nervous to make the move. I'll have to setup a test site and mess around, but thats besides the point.

    Hell, Xenforo even gives out IIS rewrites and lighttpd.

    I personally think this could very much separate you from the competition, especially as times are changing. More and more people are moving away from the basic mySQL / Apache to things like MariaDB + XtraDB, or lighttpd / nginx / varnish / squid.

    I don't know what everyone is getting up in arms about.

    I had IP.Downloads expire 5 days ago. IP. Board expired today, and IP. Content had been expired for a few months. I paid $50 and all of sudden all my products are on the same billing cycle. Now I just have to worry about 1 date every 6 months. This isn't complicated. Read the information you are given and stop making assumptions.

    IPS isn't cheating anyone nor doing any black magic. Their system makes sense. Read the website. Read the client area. It all makes sense if you just read it.

  14. Connor T added a post in a topic IPB Cancelling Perpetual Licenses - Confirmed!   

    Obviously IPS can't make money on Perpetual and whatever the other unlimited license was. They made them to make a bunch of money 8 years ago, probably when the company was still forming and needed a large sum of money. Now steady clients with steady payments = good. One time payments = bad.

    Just buy a real license. Holding something valid for this long is just mean to them. Why do you think they keep coming out with "active" license only software? Spam Service? Skin Designer? CDN? Its because those require month to month paying and using the business model of 1 time pay just won't work.
