    I've 2 websites using Xenforo. (for example www.goochelaars.com )
    Very happy with the software, but the speed isn't as good as here on xenforo.com
    I'm using shared hosting and I think that my provider is the problem.
    I"m looking for a good website to do some tests, so I can go back to my provider and show them the results. Any tips ?

    If you're on shared hosting then you can compare it to my site which is also on shared hosting.


    Ultimately though, it's shared hosting so it's never going to be as good as a VPS or dedicated server (assuming the hardware is adequate).

    What do you use for the Countdown on the sidebar?

    Doing a traceroute shows no issues, doing a ping from 3 different providers shows no issues (incidental spike from 8ms to 21ms but that's it).

    I suspect the server load being more than it should be .. You could test this with a script like loadCheck.php in your public_html directory, with content:
    (note that this script wont run if the server runs in safe_mode on)
    but worth a try.

    On our host, the script won't run because shell_exec needs to run as a logged in user, as opposed to user "nobody" on Apache. Not sure how true this is at other hosts, though. Just in case someone tries to use this.
