Is there any caching add-on and speed tune-up tutorial available for 2021?


I mentioned in my last thread that I'm interested in starting a Xenforo community. Speed is an important factor in 2021.

Is there any caching add-on and tutorial available for 2021? I see [bd] Cache is there but it's unmaintained.

Any other solution?

Any other solution?
  • Properly configure/optimize your server (OpCache, MariaDB, etc.)
  • Use XFES
  • Configure XF to use a cache (Memcache, Redis, etc.)
  • Enable Guest Cache
  • Carefully analyze your Add-ons
  • Try to limit usage of 3rd party resources
This should give you decent performance (if the server hardware isn't a bottleneck by itself).
