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)

APC support will be coming in either 1.0.3 or 1.0.4, unfortunately I haven't had time as of yet to install APC on my server, but once I have I'll implement it into vB Optimise

I'm also glad to hear the positive effects this is having on peoples forums

Getting this error:
vB Optimise: You have selected the File Cache method but the directory ./vboptimise does not have sufficient write permissions. Please chmod the folder then try submit these settings again. (Usually chmod 0777).
The folder is chmod 777

Birdie...It's a little strange that it works for everybody else...

What option are you using and what kind of server (also what php version) is that ?

Its a shared host. I still trying to get to the bottom of it. Waiting to hear back from some people who know a lot more than I do about it.

I'm going to install this one on my test forum first to see how it goes. But the idea looks great. Save resourses = save $

Thanks mate.

I have 6 forums; 4 with one host and two with another. I installed the mod on all 6 after it worked fine on one. The 4 with the one host worked fine; the two with the other host really got screwed up. They all in a shared hosting environment.

Unfortunatly, the host of the screwed up ones are not available (its currently 10PM Friday night in Australia). Fortunatly the hosts of the other 4 are available (they in a different country) and looked in to it for me. They have fixed one and given me the instructions to fix the other.

They said the problem is most likely the way the other host has the servers set up (I do not know what).

In case this happens to anyone else, this is the instructions they gave me:
Login to FTP => go to your config.php file => at the very top of the
file you should see this code uncommented "define('DISABLE_HOOKS',
true);" un-comment the code and make it active then re-upload the file.
This turns off ALL plugins.

You should then be able to login the admin panel and un-install the vb
optimize mod.

After the mod has been removed then uncomment the code once again in the
config file to turn the plug-ins back on.
Thank you to the great folk at URLJet for allowing me to not have a sleepless night over this one!
