Alpha software is not stable. It is what comes before beta and 3 steps before the final version.
It will most likely fail, crash, and destroy things beyond recovery
It will have bugs
You should only use it on a separate test site on its own server.
DO NOT use on your home site. No help or support provided if you are that stupid.
- 2 independent web hosting accounts (for remote usages)
- 2 XenForo sites (remember, you're going to not use a live site for the alpha)
- 1 Yabb forum
- 1 MyBB forum
- Knowledge of php, mysql, perl, curl, and generally how to follow and read an error log.
-- Preferably VPS or Dedicated. It needs to be optimized further before I would suggest using this on a small shared account. This is raw code and not final.
- What you'll be testing (3 total)
XenForo to XenForo Merger
MyBB to XenForo
Yabb to XenForo
There will be the option to do a local import and a remote import and I would like people who could test both.
I'm not ready yet for Alpha testers, but I would like to know in advance who would be interest.
This is going to take sometime....This will be a free and open source project once it's released.
The official release date is: When it is ready (not a moment sooner).
NOTE: If you're already working on any of the above and plan on freely releasing it into the community, please let me know. If you're further along than I... I can simply drop one of these features.
