Web Forum Engine

 
   

Objectives

The project objective was to design a web forum.
 

Results

The project implementation resulted in a Web forum consisting of the user's and administrator's parts. The messages sent by users should be displayed in the user's part of the forum only after they have been approved by administrator, who, in his turn, had access to all messages.
   

Technical peculiarities

The forum targets Linux Web servers which do not have access to DBMS, and the script languages may not be supported under them either. That is why the forum was implemented using C++ and, besides generating HTML pages which is a normal
  feature of a CGI-application, it provided the functionality of a special database. This functionality implements storing all messages of the forum in a file and managing multiple simultaneous requests of data read and write.
