  • Site is running slow...

    My site over the past weeks has gotten terrible slow. I of course have been in talks with my host and they assure me everything is fine on there end and vbulletin is to blame. They base this off a test that they did where cron.php was hanging for 16 seconds http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/c9KI.../hagin-out.net Now you will also notice the time to first bytes is greatly delayed as well. That is the case with every test I run. http://www.webpagetest.org/result/150921_HG_1CPX/ Im running 3.8.7. I havent made any changes to anything. No Mods or anything. Ive tried disabling all the modifications and its still slow. Is there any possible way vbulletin is delaying the time to first bytes time by 10 seconds?


    Here is the Saga at Vbulletin.org where they have tried to sort it out and the suggestions they have made.

        The no permission screen loaded for me in under a second. Would need a username and login to review other pages.

        I would suggest upgrading your systems though... MYSQL 5.5, vBulletin 3.8.9, PHP 5.5X and in that order...

          Also I might add that double posting happens all the time, even though the double post prevention is in place. Maybe that will help diagnose things.

            What you're calling Double Posting protection isn't supposed to do what you think it should be doing. What it does is the same person creates two different new posts in a row, it merges them into one. It doesn't prevent a race condition between a javascript submit of a post and a manual submit of a post. That is what you are experiencing when you have two of the same posts. It would be related to the speed of your site if you're having speed issues.

              Are you running on shared hosting? Is so, you should think about upgrading.

              You should also make sure that you're running MySQL 5.5, PHP 5.5+ and vBulletin 3.8.9. You would want to upgrade them in the order of MySQL, vBulletin, and then PHP. That will give you about a 20-50% performance boost.

              There aren't a lot of performance enhancing features built into vBulletin 3.8.X though. There are addons that might help like vBOptimize.
