Proof of Concept

There is a proof of concept server located at Access is by web, iPhone app, Android app, or desktop app.


A list of known issues with the current proof of concept server.

  • Error reported during account creation
    • Likely due to incorrect configuration of sendmail
    • Should just disable email validation

  • Disable attachments
  • Disable location services
  • Disable OpenID
  • Install PHP bytecode accelerator
    • APC appears to be the defacto standard
  • Disable URL shorteners
