I have a rather fresh install of XenForo (came over from vbulletin and also recently switched hosts). The forum has 350,000+ posts.
The forum typically has
- about 25 to 50 people on the forum during regular hours (members + visitors)
- sometimes spikes to 200 forum users if one of the blog articles or a forum post is linked to on a popular website.
- can be 500 forum users once a year or so when Digg or Reddit etc links to the site.
- there is also a blog that can pull in substantial readership
I visited the Defining a Cache page: http://xenforo.com/help/cache/
Not being very savvy on these things, is it correct that all I need to do for this is to add the following to config.php:
$config['cache']['enabled'] = true;
$config['cache']['frontend'] = 'Core';
$config['cache']['frontendOptions']['cache_id_prefix'] = 'xf_';
What other tweaks for the server, php, mysql etc might work well without much knowledge other than CPANEL and WHM basics as well as contacting the host?
The website is on a VPS with HostGator "Level 4"
