    I didn't know what CDN was. I had to read up on it. o_O

    I'm not sure how that would be implemented with a forum. Why do you want to setup a CDN? Is your forum busy enough that it is maxing out the network?

    Why do you have 2 servers?:p
    Are they connected "direct" (sorry don't know the right english word for this^^)
    What are the server doing? (do you use both as web-,mail- & database server? )

    Sorry but this sounds a little bit "i have much money, i got now an second server, but i don't know what to do with it:D :p *scnr*

    I don't think xenforo is CDN ready as of now ... but the idea of using a spare server for static content is feasible if the application integrates CDN ie : WordPress

    Aye I thought they might be some software which picks up all the static content from "here to there" np thanks tho :)

    It'll work with ftp .. but a mod to xenforo needs to pickup the static content (mainly js and png, jpgs ..etc..) and ftp all of them to a directory on the other server ...

    I've done this with WP and vB ... I'm sure something for xenforo will come around soon :D

    You can set up rsync to do that automatically.
