    Competitions for XenForo [Paid]

    Is it correct, that the addon closes manually opended competitions if the starting date is not reached yet? Or am I doing something wrong? I really would like to keep the competition open, even if starting date is some days ahead. The addon would open answering option anyway on time, so it...

    Xenforo on Amazon EC2

    The traffic is not a real financial problem at the moment and it will improve after moving gallery + attachments towards S3. Currently only the RDS performance is crucial, and the price for the (at the moment) very bad performance.

    Xenforo on Amazon EC2

    Thank you all. I hope again that with your comments/support we'll manage to solve the bottle neck. We do use memcache already, @MattW did a great work. At the moment XenForo Gallery (official addon/ChrisD) and attachments are loaded from EC2 instance. But I got @Xon 's attachment store already...

    XF 1.5 SSL support in config for database connection?

    As fallback because of my AWS RDS problems I prepare my own server to be the database server for the Xenforo, which stays on AWS EC2. So the database connection leaves network and communicates with an external server. Both are in the same city though, but in different data centers. How do I...

    Xenforo on Amazon EC2

    I mean "users online" with 15min session times. I really want to stay with AWS, but at the moment it does not feel right. But your comments make me hope again ;) Wooow, this must be a huge site, congratulations. And you are using just the next RDS size, so 4 CPUs and 16GB RAM? Yes, I mean...

    Xenforo on Amazon EC2

    Thank you again! We did not had 200GB on 5th. At that time we had 20GB only. We increased to 200GB on 11-11. Yes, the IOPS peak... But that was on 11-04, the day before, when we switched RDS instances, t2.small (not t2.micro as said above) to m4.large. The small red read IOPS peak on 5th is...

    Xenforo on Amazon EC2

    Thank you so much, @Jim Boy Can you recognize something in these dashboards? Heavy breakedown was on 11-05, at 19-20h UTC. That was with +450 users in forums, around 100 of them visiting one thread, hitting reload every few seconds and writing dozends of posts (they were awaiting the results...

    Xenforo on Amazon EC2

    After running it for around 6 weeks now I am deeply dissatisfied about the performance / price of AWS. For my Xenforo forums I now run a m4.large EC2 instance (with load balancers in front of) and a m4.large (2 virtual modern CPUs with 8GB RAM) RDS instance with mysql. RDS size is 200GB to have...

    Anybody with Xenforo on Debian 9 Stretch?

    Nothing special. But since I don't know what may have changed in Debian 9, in any relation to Xenforo (DB, PHP, modules, anything) I prefer to ask before if anybody runs Xenforo on Debian 9 successfully. It's just safer ;)

    Anybody with Xenforo on Debian 9 Stretch?

    I know from this thread, that newest PHP should be now problem for Xenforo. But the OS contains more things, eg. MariaDB instead of MySQL and everything else is newest version too. So there might by some problems with brand new Debian 9 Stretch... So, before I update my Debian: Is there anybody...

    I asked users again. Some had it earlier, sometimes - but not as often as today. Before today the [bd] API option was set much smaller, so it may not be related. My own testusers have +11.000 new messages showing up with ChrisD's "red bubble" - addon. I could reproduce that the link was gone for...

    Thank you @Siropu! Yes, I think it depends on the amount of new messages for the users. BUT: this happens mostly starting from today. Earlier occourences may had other reasons some users said, the list were not refreshed (not addon cache used) since today, so showing only newest posts which...

    Especially since today (but before rarely & seldom too) lots of users are complaining, that they do not see the "Show more..." footer line (the whole table row) anymore. And, much more strange: sometimes it is there (for some users for several hours), sometimes not. Changes within the day. For...

    Quick look at UI.X 2

    Please don't forget to migrate Xenith as you agreed already ;). Maybe not as the very first, but after hopefully after the first wave.

    XF 1.5 Reimport threads, posts (and attachments) from users with id 0

    Thank you Mike. But the threads and posts were (very probable) imported correctly at migration (and deleted later), so no ID conflict should accour. I could select/export those threads from an existing xenforo database. Same with posts. And reimport them into the live database. I would be even...
