    XF 1.2 Can't uninstall add-on

    Hi @Case, I had the same problem and I think I found a solution: https://xenforo.com/community/threads/bump-a-thread-paid.28813/page-6#post-881509 Perhaps you already found it, too, but if not, Cheers! The code I provided comes with absolutely no warranty. However, I used it on my site and am...

    Bump a Thread [Paid] [Deleted]

    I believe that there is a bug in an older version of this addon. I found a solution and am posting it here for the benefit of anyone else who might be in the same bind. Originally, I thought that the problem was mine rather than with the addon, so I drafted a post about it in a general forum...

    Interest in a XenForo specific iphone/android app.

    Hmmmm....We don't have ads on our forum, as I'm sure is the case with many others. I really love the ad-free experience, but we also don't have much revenue. I want the best for our forum so usually try to buy the ad-free version, but am wondering if we could afford it. I think we could pay a...

    Which Apache MPM do you use?

    <doing the happy dance> But please do vote in the poll. I had thought that the vast majority of people used PreFork, and I'd love to find out the truth.

    Interest in a XenForo specific iphone/android app.

    That would be much appreciated. Our site is happy to pay for things that offer real improvement, but we only have tens of thousands of posts, so the numbers won't work out if the subscription is too high. At the same time, the world is definitely going mobile, so having an app could help us...

    PHP handlers (and opcode caches) for Xenforo on Apache

    Thanks for the tip. My plan has changed and now is to use FastCGI from within EasyApache. Anyone else have thoughts?

    Which Apache MPM do you use?

    The following highly rated ServerFault post argues for using the Event MPM rather than PreFork or Worker: http://serverfault.com/questions/383526/how-do-i-select-which-apache-mpm-to-use People called the post "epic" and canonical in the comments. Does it apply to XF, though? Which Apache MPM...

    PHP handlers (and opcode caches) for Xenforo on Apache

    By the way, as I've been researching PHP handlers and opcode caches, I periodically find threads from this forum, even when I'm not looking for XenForo specific content. For example, we're the fifth result for the following query: https://www.google.com/webhp#q=xcache+php+opcache Apparently...

    PHP handlers (and opcode caches) for Xenforo on Apache

    Oops, sorry, I meant a reference or some code that would be equivalent to the code I pasted in but would be for FastCGI alone (without php-fpm). Basically, I was hoping you'd paste in some example code from one of your httpd.conf files, suitably anonymized. I didn't know if that was proprietary...

    PHP handlers (and opcode caches) for Xenforo on Apache

    For anyone following along, I really appreciated that Mike responded and did some additional research. If you want to get the most you can out of an Apache server (opcode caching, for example) but still have multiple users and care about security, php-fpm should probably be on your radar...

    PHP handlers (and opcode caches) for Xenforo on Apache

    Thanks, Mike. It sounds like that works very well. 5+ million is pretty huge. If I were using php-fpm, I think I would probably use FastCGI to interface with php-fpm. I have a basic idea of how I would configure my httpd.conf for this combination. It would look something like the following...

    Best Anti ddos/flood

    Thanks for the great responses. I can begin to see the multiple perspectives to help me make my own choice.

    PHP handlers (and opcode caches) for Xenforo on Apache

    I should mention that I'm not a pro with all of this and also have a million other responsibilities, so I'll be relying on the tech support from my hosting company (LiquidWeb) to install things. I called them and they said that PHP-fpm shouldn't be a problem to compile, but I don't think it...

    Best Anti ddos/flood

    Glad to hear it that it is mostly on the host. I will contact our hosting company to see how they handle it, but my bet is that they are pretty solid. We'll see. It's a big weight off my shoulders, though, so thanks for the tips. @Chris Verringer, I was really impressed with OVH's prices. Are...

    PHP handlers (and opcode caches) for Xenforo on Apache

    What sort of PHP handlers people recommend for Apache running on a server with multiple independent sites? I'm upgrading from a 1 gig to a 2 gig VPS. I'm putting APC and DSO/mod_php behind me and starting anew. The only limit is that I need to use PHP 5.5 rather than anything newer. Right now...

    Best Anti ddos/flood

    As our website grows, I'm becoming more concerned about the possibility of facing a DDOS attack. We only get about 120,000 pageviews/month and aren't super technical. We run Apache/cPanel, etc. Any tips for what we should be doing now to protect ourselves in case we are attacked?

    How much VPS power do I need?

    Thanks for the quick reply, @craigiri. So I guess you'd be in the "For $60/month I can't really expect that type of information" camp. That seems quite reasonable. I've never once elevated, but I've just been getting more and more frustrated. I guess I have to look elsewhere for advice. For the...

    How much VPS power do I need?

    In terms of VPS transitions, I've been thinking about this for a while. I think the next step along our server migration path will be to an unmanaged Linode VPS using CentMinMod and hiring @MattW to help manage the transition. Linode's prices are terrific and I think they do a great unmanaged...

    How much VPS power do I need?

    Thanks for the case report, Craigiri. I've been having similar experiences and have become similarly disillusioned with the tech support at LiquidWeb. They seem really nice, but I've come to think that the first level tech support people probably only get one week of training. Basically, they...

    Business Liability Insurance?

    I'd be very interested in reading this, @Mr Lucky. It may vary by country, but my understanding was that in the US, this was not the case. In the US, I've heard that we get enormous protection from Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. Wikipedia has some great background on it...
