    Shhh it is a secret

    Nothing special a little tweaking and added mysql query caching. If forum is very large try:


    • Move common assets (css/jss/logo/images) to CDN
    • Tune mysql query cahce
    • Use software such as APC, XCache, eAccelerator etc
    • Try memcached
    • Tune file system
    • Add lots of memory
    • Add fast Scsi 15k in RAID-10 etc

    Note none of the above used at nixcraft forum except Xcache and memcached.

    I am noticing good speeds as well.

    However.

    This sounds like what yahoo's firefox plugin "web Developer" tells me when I test sites.

    I have found that Turck MMcache has really sped up our sites as well as using a CDN for our static images.

    Great Advice Vivek,

    Raj,
    This is a plugin that we use for firefox. There is a tool bar and a addon called YSLOW. Our web developers run it to check on pieces of code e.g. javascript , php that may not run correctly.

    As of now I am not sure about Safari, However I run firefox on my mac with the web developer plugin.

    You can check it here:

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/60

    YSLOW:

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5369


    Yslow was developed by yahoo.com

    Check them out.

    It was slow y'day as one of my clients site got too much traffic (they got their site on TV) and it slowed down all other sites including nixcraft. But it is okay now as I moved my clients domainname behind load balancer.
