  • install vb5 second try

    Hi.

    About 6 months ago we tried to upgrade from vb4 to vb5. It was a disaster. the forum went verry slow and a few other problems.
    Now we want to retry and hope it works.

    The system it will be installed on meets the following :

    Intel S5000PSL server board
    Processors : 2 * Intel XEON E5405 2Ghz
    Memmory : 32GB
    Hard disk 500GB

    Running Windows 2008..

    We have Hyper-V running 4 VPS
    The VPS on wich VB5 must run has 20GB memmory and 4 cores from the processor running.

    We have about 150.000 visitors a month and about 400 members returning dailly

    Can this system handle vb5 whitout getting slow ?

    What Server are you using? IIS? What is the method of accessing PHP? FastCGI?

    What version of PHP? MySQL?

    What op-code cache are you using? Do you have Wincache installed? Memcache?

    Database on the same machine?

        You should upgrade to MySQL 5.5.X and PHP 5.4.X for best results. Both give a good percentage in performance boosts over their predecessors.

        I'd recommend installing MemcacheD over xcache as well. The system is better tested with MemcacheD.

          Thank you for the information.
          Tomorrow we will start with the process.

          You think that with the specs we have and the tips you have given it could handle the visitors and members our forum has ?

              Are you sure AllowOverride's is configured correctly? In general it has to be set to All, instead of none.

                The allowoverride is All .. (in httpd.conf).
                Perhaps need to specify a directory ?


                The character problem still exists

                  We worked very hard, 2 persons, 4 days. It's crap !

                  Bugs, errors, failures and barely support !

                  We are seriously considering ipboard !

                    You will need to set the rewrite base as stated in the .htaccess file if you're vBulletin is in a subdirectory.

                    The character issue is a little more problematic. What is the encoding of your database?

                      Thanks to another customer, this actually appears to be an issue with IIS, and i'm forwarding the issues that they used to resolve the problem: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2277918
                      For 7.5 you need to download the hotfix AND you need to add the registry setting.
                      For 8.0 adding the registry setting is more than enough. So I did this:
                      reg add HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\w3svc\Parameters /v FastCGIUtf8ServerVariables /t REG_MULTI_SZ /d REQUEST_URI\0PATH_INFO

                        I think he is running a Windows port of Apache though on his VM. So my best guess that he has to change his language from ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8 for the problem.
