vB Optimise Lite

Professional version & feature list available @ www.DragonByte-Tech.com
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:

FAQ

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:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
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: http://eaccelerator.net/wiki/CompileConfiguration (Specifically look at: with-eaccelerator-shared-memory)

Q: It says my opcode cacher can't store data?
A: Check to see you're using a supported Apache handler if you're using Apache: http://www.thecpaneladmin.com/wp-con...phandlers2.png

Great mod. Improves server load and loading speed. Has already saved me over 5k queries in under an hour of it being installed. I'm probably looking at 5+ million saved queries per month.

When I try to save Cache settings and Misc settings pages, I get a white page.

On the settings test page I get a js popup that says:
AJAX Failure

Internal Server Error
once it gets to: "Running Test: Flush Cache"

When I click the flush cache link, it does nothing but takes me to a grey screen.

The Resource Saving Statistic page doesnt seem to be working, but maybe thats b/c I cant save settings.

I cant even save the Main settings page b/c of a white screen.

This all has happened AFTER I installed xcache. It wasnt installed before. I have a db server and a web server. xcache is installed on my web server.



Also, when using this mod, I assume the caching options in the config.php file are ignored????

We've seen an influx of incorrectly configured xcache servers as of late

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

to your config.php file, then change the vBO cache setting to Filecache, then remove the above PHP code (or comment it out).

If you have xcache.admin.enable_auth set to On you need to provide the username and password in the config.php file for this mod.

If not, you'll want to run these two test scripts in order:

Ok. It happens when I uncomment out this line in the ini file:

;; install as zend extension (recommended), normally "$extension_dir/xcache.so"
zend_extension = /usr/local/lib/php/extensions/non-debug-non-zts-xxx/xcache.so
; zend_extension_ts = /usr/local/lib/php/extensions/non-debug-zts-xxx/xcache.so
;; For windows users, replace xcache.so with php_xcache.dll
zend_extension_ts = c:/php/extensions/php_xcache.dll
;; or install as extension, make sure your extension_dir setting is correct
; extension = xcache.so
;; or win32:
; extension = php_xcache.dll

:/ Not sure why that happens. But thats what the installation instructions said do. Anyone have any ideas?



--------
Ok It seems like the problem was that I had this set to on:

[xcache.admin]
xcache.admin.enable_auth

I set it to off, and now it seems to be working. Thx for the reply.

Yeah that was exactly what the problem was. The authentication. Thx.

So the cache settings in the config.php file get ignored now, right???

I got blank pages when upgrade to version v2.5.0
Has it to do with vbSEO Likes or so?

I'm considering the paid version of this mod but I'm a little concerned at having recently upgraded from the older (lite) release to version 2.4.0 (lite) because I'm seeing almost no change in SQL statistics.

Is this expected?

I also have a problem with the cost of the full version of your mods if I'm honest.

How do you justify charging more than a full vBulletin 4.0 license ($195) for a mod?

Yeah, since the older Lite version and 2.4.0 added no new cache features, only the display of the SQL queries saved

v2.5.0 Lite added additional cache if you run APTL or AUT, but don't expect a giant leap in stats there either - it's only the Statistics pages of those mods that are cached.

The Pro version, however, adds Who Has Read Thread and Who Has Visited Forum cache for vB 4.2.0+, which should see a significant boost in stats - that's ignoring all the other benefits that you can read about in the OP

vBOptimise is priced the way it is because it has the potential to (and in many cases does) save MUCH more than that over its lifetime (sometimes within a month or two) in increased server fees keeping up with site growth etc. Some of our customers save millions, tens of millions or even over 100 million queries per day, which would all usually translate into increased costs. Thanks to vBO that's not the case.

Obviously our pricing isn't for everyone, that's why we release Lite versions as well, so people who run smaller sites and such can still get much of the benefit of our products

I have had this installed for a few weeks and I just noticed this on my forum home page...

MySQL Queries vB Optimise has saved this forum 0
Does this ever get reset or is it possible that vboptimise has not saved us any queries? All settings are showing as optimal and all test complete successfully.

Also, it may be a coincidence, but since installing, the number of guests has jumped 5 X (hundreds) at any given time. I thought that was strange. For the record I did install a few mods around the same time.

Thanks
