  • Increasing the speed of the forum

    Hello,
    I read in a forum that:

    if I put this code in the header template :

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    ob_start
    'ob_gzhandler' );
    ?>
    This will speed up the speed of accessing the forum .. is it right ?

    And does it couse any disadvantages in my forum ?

    Regadrs ..

    vBulletin already has a gzip option just turn it on, no need to add that to the header teplate as it wouldn't work anyway

        Yes that is right.

        1 will offer the best ammount of compression for the cpu usage, higher numbers result in signifcatly less compression, and cost more CPU usage.

        1 is the best setting

            Just a question... if 1 is the best setting and higher numbers cause "significantly less compression," why does vB offer the option to change it?

              Because they are there already, someoone might really want to use 9 to get the extra .06% compression....
