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 @ www.DragonByte-Tech.com/forum
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:

Features
  • 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.

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 installed this on IIS and received the following error when I try to enable it:

vB Optimise: You have selected a cache method that vB Optimise has detected you cannot use, this may be because the extension required is either not installed or configured correctly on your server. Please contact your system administrator or hosting provider for more information.

I am using Wincache and according to phpinfo it is enabled:

wincache
Opcode cache enabled
File cache enabled
Version 1.0.1325.0
Owner iisphp@microsoft.com
Build Date Jan 21 2010 17:35:42

Any ideas what I might have missed?

Trana - WinCache added var cache support in 1.1, you're using 1.0 (however note WinCache 1.1 is in beta). This is covered in the FP FAQ:

I've gotten my host to enable eAccelerator but now when I try to flush the cache I get this error.


vB Optimise: Your eAccelerator requires you to specify permission to this directory to allow vB Optimise to clear your cache. For more information please visit here.

Hi nascartr,

eAccelerator can be configured with protection, as such it requires you to manually give scripts permissions to access certain functions (in our case the flush). You or your host will need to edit your php configuration for eAccelerator and specify the location to: /your/path/to/forums/vboptimise/core/core_vboptimise.php within the setting eaccelerator.admin_allowed_path.

Seems silly I know, but that's eAccelerator for you

Typically servers don't have extensions by default, you should contact your hosting provider if unsure - they too can install extensions (sometimes).

I just found this program so excited to see if it helps my database issues when the forum is busy.

It installed just fine and I went into admin to find under "optimal settings check" I didn't have my avatars set as files. When I attempt to change this, I get a database error such as the following:

Database error in vBulletin 3.7.3:

Invalid SQL:

SELECT user.userid
FROM user AS user
LEFT JOIN customavatar AS customavatar ON (user.userid = customavatar.userid)
LEFT JOIN customprofilepic AS customprofilepic ON (user.userid = customprofilepic.userid)
LEFT JOIN sigpic AS sigpic ON (user.userid = sigpic.userid)
WHERE user.userid > 1375
AND (NOT ISNULL(customavatar.userid) OR NOT ISNULL(customprofilepic.userid) OR NOT ISNULL(sigpic.userid))
LIMIT 1;

TitanJeff - Your MySQL service is timing out during the operation of moving files from the database to the file system, you should try increasing the timeout settings on your MySQL config, but that may not work unfortunately.

I installed this, everything went fine, and then I went to do a "System Check" and get this message:

vB Optimise is currently offline. Please enable and configure vB Optimise to run a system test.
So I went to vB Optimise Settings and double checked everything, it is set to "Yes" to be on. I click save and it says it saves the setting successfully. I go back and check and still says it is offline.

Ideas? Running 3.8.5

TruthElixirX - The first setting in the vBO configuration is called "vB Optimise: Online/Offline", is that setting set to Yes? That controls if the product is online/offline (by default it will install as offline as you need to configure the cache and options).
