    Third party Unfurl function not reading image secure_url from source site

    The point was we shouldn't have to enable proxy to mitigate the issue where a simple check for secure url that's part of the spec is a negligible change.

    XF 1.5 License Stolen?

    Find a better friend. If you gave him access to the files, I assume it's via SFTP or SSH? You own the hosting I assume so do whatever you can to revoke the access to the hosting and then you can work on reinstating your own access to the forum itself.

    Anyone use Upcloud and have issues?

    Linode have similar block storage options and pricing as DO. The difference being it's a network attached SSD storage separate from the VPS volume and it's fantastic for allocating set amounts of additional space for a set cost, whilst being very flexible in expanding that attached storage size...

    Front-end verses back-end caching

    Mysql has its own caches, innodb buffers and such. The more RAM you have available, the more you can allocate to those buffers.

    the xenForo mobile app created by xenForo, when ?

    Facebook groups have their use but they're not a replacement for a full forum. It depends on what the use case is, the type of content.

    Help with hosting resources much appreciated!

    If you are able to configure and maintain a server yourself without needing things like CPanel, you can get a lot more for your $$ with a VM instead.
