Go into your files on the server and in application/settings/cache.php change from redis to file. Lines 17-25 and you should make a backup of the cache file first.
array ( 'File' => array ( 'file_locking' => true, 'cache_dir' => '/Applications/MAMP/htdocs/fresh/temporary/cache', ), ), 'default_file_path' => '/Applications/MAMP/htdocs/fresh/temporary/cache', ); ?>
I'm using SEPHP on Cazaratech hosting (phpfoxsolutions) and it works fine there. I've a few plugins I made (in the se market) and don't use other stuff so can't say about other plugins. I can't wait for 4.9 as I love the new theme.
SECloud is more a twitter-esque sort of platform. It's good for a reddit sort of site but it's not something I would use for a socialnetwork with the things we tend to use on those.
Are you currently (or with the newer version) able to tag someone in discussions in SE?
In 4.10 we have username tagging (mentions) .
I migrated my author site to SE. If you are still a member, feel free to log in and explore. I had no trouble. I use Groups and it has Discussions (forum).
I use the Atlas theme which is responsive so I don't need mobile app and don't have those fees associated with mobile apps. There are mobile apps available.
I love the control I have in SE, networks are awesome - I use them for genres. With 4.10 coming soon, we'll have hashtags, smileys and more control over networks and profile mapping so it'll be pretty complete.
I don't miss much. My ST main site is PF v3. If you were to use PF, I suggest v3 over v4. Less issues. However, SE has a better setup for CDN and external storage. Honestly, you should ask @Zixia604 as he just migrated a huge community. Perhaps PM him.
