GuildPortal FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions about GuildPortal Hosting


Q: Can I run my PHP, ASP, or CGI scripts on GuildPortal?

PHP, ASP and CGI scripts use server-side resources to execute, and can access databases, modify the file system, and bring a server to its knees if not properly optimized.  Because of the security concerns, as well as those concerning performance, GuildPortal cannot host server-side scripts written externally.

There are alternatives, however.  For example, if you have a script hosted on another server, you could have it output XML data and then use the GuildPortal XML/XSL Transform content type to display that data in your guild pages.  You could also create an Embedded Page content type that points to the page on your external server where your script is running.
