  • Dear Lord -- Bandwith

    ok guys I got a little problem on my hand... Im running the latest Vbulletin, just switched to a new server where Im allowed 35gigs of traffic per month.. well Ive been running my stats lately

    and Im averaging close to 5gigs of traffic a day

    I just turned off avatars, and Ive relocated the top reload page image to another server so that wont be recalled over and over again.

    Ive heard about something called Gzip?? does that come automatically turned on with Vbulletin or is it something I need to do or add?? anyone help??

    Any other suggestions you may have would be more then appreciated..

      mod_gzip has nothing to do with vBulletin or any other software, it's a module for the Apache webserver. Your host has to install it on their server.

        I know people saving large amounts of bandwidth using This Tip

          You should contact your host and ask for zlib.

          When we had zlib enabled in our php, our bandwidth was reduced to less than one half of what it was before.

          Just make sure that you don't set your gzip compression level higher than '1' in your vb admin panel. Apparently setting it higher results in negligible changes to compression, but is hard on server resources.
