vB Optimise Lite

The newly revamped vB Optimise was created for vBulletin 4, but has now been made compatible for vBulletin 3.8. In this release I have re-coded vB Optimise from the gound and focused stability over features, you'll notice Phrase Caching and vBAdvanced Integration have bit the dust, this is to maintain a sync state between this version and the vBulletin 4 release.

Professional version & feature list available @
Priority support for Lite version is handled at the Developers Website.

What does it do?

vB Optimise is intended to optimise vBulletin software by integrating several PHP "cachers" and handling data before vBulletin. This works by encountering and handling data prior to vBulletin in order to skip the arbitary execution that would be more server intensive.

Real-Life Statistics

We've teamed up with some Big Forums to show you the impact of vB Optimise, you can view this public chart which shows both our statistics and theirs:

View Public vB Optimise Resource Statistics

  • Supported Extensions
    • APC
    • eAccelerator
    • Memcache
    • XCache
    • WinCache
    • Filecache
  • Style Cacher
    Caches style data to globally reduce a query within all vBulletin forum-based pages.
  • Template Cacher
    Caches template data to globally reduce a query within all vBulletin forum-based pages.
  • Datastore Cacher
    Forces custom datastore items from modifications (including those from vB's blogs) to use your configured Datastore Cache method instead of being forced into the database. This reduces page queries by where affected.
  • vB CMS Template Caching
    (Automatic) Corrects many uncached templates within vB CMS to reduce upto 20+ queries on CMS pages (number varies based on content).
  • Optimal Settings Check
    Provides a quick interface to identify possible settings which can be changed on your forum for further optimisation.
  • Self-System Tester
    Provides a relatively straight-forward system check to ensure your vB Optimise installation works fully.
  • Automatic Cache Flusher
    Automatically flushes cache within the Admin CP based on specific triggers to make sure content does not remain stale on your forum.
  • XCache Authentification
    Supports XCache Admin Authentification by allowing you specify the username/password in a configuration if needs be.

Features - Pro
  • Notices Cacher
    Caches users dismissed notices to reduce a near-global query within all vBulletin forum-based pages.
  • Showgroups Cacher
    Caches the showgroups query which becomes more intensive as your user-base grows.
  • Forum Display Query Enhancement
    Enhances a stock vBulletin query within Forum Display to speed up the page.
  • Forum Home WOL Cache
    Caches Forum Home "Who's Online" to remove an intensive query and allow larger sites to display this data without impact.
  • vB Cache Override (Feature not available on vBulletin 3)
    Ability to override vBulletins new built-in database cacher for the CMS / Forum Sidebar Blocks to remove anything from 1 to 20+ queries based on your content.
  • Full Guest Caching
    Ability to cache entire pages and serve them saving not only hundreds of queries but upto 90% of CPU processing towards Guests.
  • Statistical Resource Savings
    Ability to see just exactly how many queries per day vB Optimise has saved your database. You'll be surprised at the numbers.
  • Forum Resource Statistic
    Shows off vB Optimise resource saving statistics directly within forumhome statistics.
  • ....and more!

Release Notes

If you've used vB Optimise before you'll be aware the previous version had phrase caching, however this caused complications with the way phrases are used within vBulletin so it has not been ported over at this time.

Available Translations
v1.6.0 French - Thanks to finereader

Q: I have WinCache installed, but vB Optimise tells me it's not?
A: WinCache only introduced OpCode support in version 1.1, if you're using version 1.0.x you will need to upgrade.

Q: I'm using the XCache method, flushing doesn't work?
A: If you have XCache authentification, turn the admin option on within vB Optimise Settings, then edit ./vboptimise/config.php and specify your XCache username/password. Alternatively you can disable XCache authentification within php.ini:

Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Q: I have eAccelerator installed, but vB Optimise tells me it's not?
A: eAccelerator does not provide the caching extension by default, you will need to recompile PHP with additional flags. For more information read eAccelerator documentation located here: (Specifically look at: with-eaccelerator-shared-memory)

I'm getting a mysql error on just one of my sites with this hack active (the error doesn't appear when it's disabled)

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

It seems to be messing up the session data for some reason, but I cannot see how and do not have any other mods that effect that area...

Any suggestions? This hack works fine on all my other sites... all sites are running VB3.8.1 pl1, all sites use the same skin and all sites use similar hacks although there are extra hacks on this site it refuses to work on. They also all run from a dedicated server which only runs installations of VBulletin and Photopost

A Bug:

Guests are able to change styles with no permissions by directly going to the URL. For example, if you have unchecked (disabled) Default Style in Style Manager, Guests can switch to it by going to index.php?styleid=1

This happens only when you have Allow Users to change Styles turned ON in Style and Language Settings.

Temporary Solution: Turn off caching of styles.

Can anybody else confirm this bug please??

I have been using this ever since its release but have had to disable it now due to changing hosts.

My new host runs xcache and have set it up to use that and it will work for a while then suddenly it will slow the site down to a crawl even "contacting <website>" sits there for ages.

I thought it was my host so complained and they said there is no network problems and so I disabled the entire mod and instantly the site is very fast again..

Any help? or is it a uninstall perm job?

Everytime someone is emailed from my forum the sender is listed as _. Also, when someone registers, at the top left hand corner of the navbar right above "Thank you, proceed to edit Profile, blah blah" it shows a white _. When I receive the New User emails, the referrer is listed as _, unless the user specified a username in that space.

Disabling vB Optimise fixes this issue, any ideas?
