I take it that it is just me not being able to upload thumbnails after the change then ?
Try to have 2 or 3 domains for static (js) - but take care that it means more DNS lookups - so I suggest using a fast DNS server, if you go down this route.Right I'll be having a crack at this later, moved to cloud based hosting and want to optimise as much as possible.
I've got static.the-sps.org set up and pointing to my public
What URL would I stick in the style image path
Tried static.the-sps.org/styles/default and that doesn't work.
Um confused about serving up the js, where do I move the files to?
I believe my previous questions have still yet to be answered...I'm still confused on how this stuff works... Lets say I add to my config...
I understand that I simply upload my JS to the /js folder... but the /data folder isn't uploaded by me... its data generated by XenForo itself. How does XenForo know to put the files (attachments, avatars, etc) in cdn.8wayrun.com/data. In fact, how would it even do it at all? If the CDN is a different server, it needs login credentials and path information... which is not included here. So how does this work?Code:
symlinks, copying the files to the new server after the upload, etcYou can symlink them internally?
You should get a mirror CDN. So when someone requests a file from http://cdn.8wayrun.com/filename.jpg it will check the CDN first and if it doesn't exist it will download it from http://www.8wayrun.com/filename.jpg. With this setup, there is no need for login credentials.
Like robdog said, get a CDN that "pulls" (mirrors). I use www.maxcdn.com.
