Re: phpBB 3.2

What I see a need for in phpBB 3.2 is better tools for moderators - easier moderation of threads from inside them (no messing with the pesky MCP), soft-deletion of posts, better warning system with customizable warning types and expiration times, and so on. Also, shinier administrative tools would b...

Re: discuss about phpBB3 and db high load

however, the sql caching mechanism in olympus is a diferent story altogether. there is quite an overhead to the caching system, and it is not at all clear whether there is any net gain to performance, (especially where caching at the sql backend layer exists). That's because it's file-based. It is,...

Re: discuss about phpBB3 and db high load

phpBB3 is almost certainly faster, and with a bit of work, it can be better. Take the caching system, for example. On a large forum you could drop in a memcached module to put the cache in memory. On a large forum, that should have a big effect. I think that the developers have been paying closer at...

Re: how does server protocol work?

What's the point of encrypting my password in the local database if it can be sniffed out in transit? :? It's quite possible to use Javascript to create a nonce-based authentication system where the password is never sent over the Internet, only a hashed version salted with a unique nonce (number u...

Re: The speed increase is astounding

The only negative thing I know about cache is it can be hacked... it happened to me when I had a cache mod installed on phpBB2 board, my cache was hacked so when somebody viewed the forums, it would download an executable file to their hard drive. That was quickly fixed with a cache clear. Other th...

Re: The speed increase is astounding

So given what I've read it would be fair to say 3.0 will require less CPU but there will be more activity on the HD? Sorry if I'm misunderstanding this. That's pretty much right. A good feature for 3.2 would be an eAccelerator backend included by default, as a lot of hosts offer that preinstalled, ...

Re: The speed increase is astounding

"almost certainly" is not a very good benchmark. i doubt your statement is based on any real data, but in the case i am wrong, i would like very much to hear from you, or anyone else who did some actual measurements with sql caching on/off, and can report the results. personally, if i had to wager,...

Re: The speed increase is astounding

SQL caching will almost certainly be a huge win when someone hooks it up to memcached or a PHP accelerator's shared memory cache (most offer one).

Re: The speed increase is astounding

I assume the performance improvements are due to caching. Will pbpbb 3.0 will be less CPU intensive but more memory intensive than 2.0? Thanks in advance. Actually, a lot of it is just better code, I think. Caching plays a role, but it's not in-memory caching (although it can be adapted with a modu...
