SourceForge and the lost of Hosted Apps

No Piwik, no MediaWiki, no Trac, …

SourceForge is closing his Hosted Apps service: Hosted apps retirement

As a SourceForge fan and user I’m a bit sad but I think it is a right decision. The old hosted apps service never gives you the necessary access and space to do something like to add a new extension into your MediaWiki instance. Now (in fact you could even do it sooner) you can start your own hosted app in your own project-web space. I have done it and merged my old wiki (https://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/pear3dengine/) to a new point (http://pear3dengine.sourceforge.net/wiki/).

But there is one very big problem… SourceForge allows only 16 Mb PHP memory space… this is not enough and the reason for the bad links [1] in the wiki. Hopefully they promised to work on the MediaWiki issues. So I’m looking forward!

PS: The old wiki links are now broken, I will change every link to the new url soon.
