    PHP page generation time is around 0.02s, and the server is hovering around a load of 0.05.

    As Paul just said to me "You've obviously bought a duffer" :ROFLMAO:

    If I remember correctly, the server is site is based around a SVN set up so they can pull down data (including the database?) in a few clicks. Meaning they could replicate the live site on a new server without much hassle. I may be completely off, but I was planning a similar SVN based set up for my own site.

    • Prepare new server environment
    • rsync PHP scripts etc. to new server
    • Close site on old server
    • Dump databases, transfer to new server and import
    • Open new server
    • Re-point DNS
    • Enable proxy on old server to point requests to old server through to new server
    • ...
    • Profit!

    The biggest benefit of course is enough resources available, and no sharing with other busy sites that you guys run.

    Now, everybody, just buy a license to cover the cost for them =)

    Increase in speed can be noticed, now I'm sure the new people who think of purchasing xenforo won't have second thoughts :D

    I have noticed a marked improvement. Before it was bordering on unusable on a 100mbit connection (in London) but now it is once again a pleasure to browse.

    Can you do a traceroute to xenforo.com ?
