What's the best and easiest open source online forum to host and maintain?
Hi all -- what's the best and easiest open source online forum to host and maintain?
Something simple to set up and maintain for a small group under 100 people. Something like Vanilla, phpBB, etc... but I don't know if there's something even better out there that might be easier to set up and maintain -- Vanilla, phpBB might be overkill.
Maximum simplicity for admin and maintenance, low server requirements that can run on a small-medium VPS, lowest level of headaches, low dependencies.
Also needs to be solid for security too.
Doesn't need to be fancy or pretty.
Suggestions? Best practices?
BTW, reliable email notifications to the users are super important... any tips on this? Should I use something like MXRoute for the outbound emails?
Thank you for your help!
