in thread Encrypt files on server and then decrypt when user downloads

For instance hosting companies usually (well... that is less true these days) charge a premium for SSL enabled hosting. In a corporate environment SSL usually incurs a cost that some management won't approve.

That might be true, but I don't think one can expect to come up with a self-made solution that comes near to SSL in terms of security, and that doesn't cost much more in total, if you include cost for development and maintenance of the custom solution.

[LanX]: it's easier to patch then to migrate to a PHP board, there are many semantics like linking , authorisation, templates ,...
[LanX]: I've only seen 30% of the semi professional documentation
[holli]: i was just thinking of the bare content.
[LanX]: Plenty of "templates" realised with CGI-HTML-function
[LanX]: well if you want you can fetch all XML and translate it to another board markup
[moritz]: at this time, a migration could consist of only migrating the rendered HTML of nodes
[moritz]: to a forum software that supports raw HTML input for legacy threads, and uses sane markup for everything else
[holli]: yeah, then vroom will personally stab me in the back at night
[holli]: exactly, moritz
[moritz]: with a big table of redirects to support the old links
