4 Attachment(s)
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:

What does 'Marking As Installed' do ?

* It helps you to stay on top of updates - members who have installed modifications will be notified by us whenever new updates are available.

*
For security issues - vbulletin.org will contact all members who have installed a modification whenever a security issue is brought to their attention.

* Marking a modification as installed also helps us know how many people are using our work, giving us extra incentive to provide more features and new modifications.

We appreciate the support!

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)

I am surprised to see the development being resumed for vb 3.8.x (which I use and will never upgrade to vb4).
What are the differences to the v1 version?

DragonByte Tech 23 Jun 2012 13:19

Sorry, I don't have a complete changelog since v1 since I was not the developer of that version - I've merely taken over development of this version :)

But if I recall, Deceptor told me that v1 had compatibility issues and that v2 has been re-coded from scratch.

Thank you very much
Beautiful work you can add it to your version 3.8.7
Added for the first time?
I am wondering whether I should recommend installation?

DragonByte Tech 23 Jun 2012 19:26

Yeah it should work fully with vB 3.8.7 :)


Fillip

3raq4all 23 Jun 2012 19:56

Can you help me with settings?
My version is PHP 3.8.7
I am afraid of the wrong settings
Please help me to explain the photographer

DragonByte Tech 23 Jun 2012 20:01

There is no such thing as the Wrong settings :)

If you have a specific query feel free to post it :)

Opcache Operator

In this option, why he chose?

and
Cache Datastore

yes ? or no ?

DragonByte Tech 24 Jun 2012 01:37

The "Opcache Operator" is what method of caching you want to use. If it's left on "None", then the mod will not do anything.

If you're not sure, you should pick Filecache (assuming you followed the Readme.txt installation instructions and CHMOD /dbtech/vboptimise/filecache to 0777).

You should turn on the Cache Datastore yeah, that caches things like forums, and vBulletin Options :)

I purchased the original version... so I want to now switch to this version.

I know I have to re-purchase as I didn't get lifetime updates...

If I uninstall and re-install the lite version what needs to happen once I purchase the paid version of this?

Will I have to uninstall and re-install?

D.

Gadget_Guy 24 Jun 2012 20:09

Installed and has really made an improvement on my site, even just using FileCache.

Going to look into switching to XCache but it is well worth the price.

Sir, first of all there is no Readme.txt! Can you please put a simple tutorial about each options, because I am new on here and I dont know about any previouse versions!

I did install it, and after running a few test on online webpage testers, not on one but many, my pages were loading slowe than befor! and I did use the FILECACHING options, and did CHMOD the vboptimise filecache folder to 0777.. Still slower.. What could be wrong maybe,,, the onkly thing I had a red cross over in the settings, were my AVATAR URL.. thats it



DragonByte Tech 10 Sep 2012 14:49

Sorry, it's called "Installation or Upgrade.txt".

The tutorial about each option is written on the options themselves, however I will ask our documentation writer to prioritise writing a full manual for vB Optimise :)

If page speed is slower after using Filecache, then your server's harddrives may be too slow so that bottleneck shifts from MySQL (waiting for queries to load) to the HDD (waiting for the drive to load the cache files).

If you do not have the possibility to request your host to install and configure an opcode cacher like APC or XCache (I recommend APC since it's easier to install) then unfortunately vB Optimise cannot help you :(

I have xcache installed but when i enable it in your mod i can't do anything else in admincp (well not much), i have to disable hooks via includes/config.php, the error i get is:
Warning: xcache_get() [function.xcache-get]: XCache var cache was not initialized properly. Check php log for actual reason in [path]/dbtech/vboptimise/includes/operators/xcache.php on line 21

Filecache works fine but i'd like to use xcache, any ideas?
