PHPFox Neutron Overview

Review of the PHPFox Neutron requirements and main features

Released in the 1st quarter of 2015 PHPFox Neutron is based on an open source social framework that was developed to provide the base functionality of a social networking platform for SaaS. Any additional features PHPFox Neutron provides are developed as an app, that you can update at your convenience.

 

PHPFox Neutron has a new core code base and a new database structure that is significantly reducing the number of tables from the previous version to just 3. One of those tables is designed to be a meta table which stores any data that can be later cached into memory, such as site settings, user groups and menus.

 

PHPFox Neutron uses Redis to hold past conversations and HTML5 web sockets to allow users to carry out a conversation instantly.

 

With PHPs support for Multibyte the issue with storing non-latin characters in the database has been resolved. In PHPFox Neutron users can personally share photos with specific members and can define how long the photo can be visible before it is removed from the system.

 

PHPFox Neutron supports Imagick . While PHP GD2 has brought tons of improvements over the years, Imagick for one is not bound to PHPs memory limit.

 

System requirements:

 

  • PHP Version: 5.4 or higher
  • MySQL Version: 4.1+
  • PHP EXEC function: Yes
  • PHP GD: Yes
  • PHP CURL: Yes
  • PHP memory_limit: 64M
