    [Beta 3a] Redirect forum count
    If you add a manual redirect count to a redirect forum, the manually added count does not display correctly on the frontend.
    Here is a screenshot of the redirect count in the ACP for the redirect forum:

    Clearly, that is incorrectly showing the manually added count on the frontend.

    ​May be an immediate issue because the server does not have an internet facing port (can be setup but on a different port, like 8080), it is on my internal network. You would have to reset the test url.
    Just did a fresh install and noticed that the error and error file in the logs directory is generated at first page load, for example:
    Clear MySQL, clear www directory, then SFTP all files to directoryLoad the page to install (http://192.168.1.95/) were the loaded page redirects to (http://192.168.1.95/admin/install/)Error log file is generated with the above reported errors, without even entering the license key.Let me know if you still want me to setup the server to an internet facing port and I will be happy to do this.

    I also see this error (identical) reported in Beta 3.a - but the site installs & loads fine. Fresh installs on both.

    Site no longer throws an error 500 however I still see the above error file after install.

    ​Yep all looks great, has MySQL username and password. So it threw a server 500, and I thought I would do a new fresh install after I had some sleep. Seems the new install did not throw the server 500, but has the identical error in the log (latest_sql.cgi).
    May or may not be significant for your debugging........

    Wed, 03 Dec 2014 01:56:05 +0000 (Severity: 0) 192.168.1.5 - http://192.168.1.95/ Access denied for user ''@'localhost' (using password: NO) | File | Function | Line No. | |----------------------------------------------------------------------------+-------------------------------------------------------------------------------+-------------------| | /system/Db/Db.php | [IPS\Db\_Exception].__construct | 121 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------------+-------------------------------------------------------------------------------+-------------------' | /system/Settings/Settings.php | [IPS\_Db].i | 123 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------------+-------------------------------------------------------------------------------+-------------------' | /system/Settings/Settings.php | [IPS\_Settings].loadFromDb | 84 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------------+-------------------------------------------------------------------------------+-------------------' | /system/Dispatcher/Standard.php | [IPS\_Settings].__get | 252 | '----------------------------------------------------------------------------+-------------------------------------------------------------------------------+-------------------' | | [IPS\Dispatcher\_Standard].__destruct | | '----------------------------------------------------------------------------+-------------------------------------------------------------------------------+-------------------' ------------------------------------------------------------------------Now the version previous (Beta 3 - ips_aee99) had no such errors.

    ​Beta 4.0 performs a tad slower than 3.4.x. But we have done fine tuning for our 3.4.x but not 4.0, we are in the process of doing that with the beta builds. We chose to not bother with any earlier builds because it would be pointless.
    We are running a dedicated server in the rack here, which will be much faster than your VPS, so no thanks.
    Performance tests are with stats via New Relic. We are in the process of fine tuning for IPS 4.0, and results are encouraging. Id suspect it will get better with final builds.
    The point of this topic was to have some discussion about this site, not mine, my site is not of concern (yet).
  8. Aussie Cable added a post in a topic: Fastest software to date?   

    ​After what the staff have been raving about for months, I think I have every right to question something that seems to contradict what they have been saying, don't you?
    ​Why is it too early, staff have been working on this for months, and I am just making an observation, should I just not say anything if I see bad performance on software I am going to purchase?
    The point of this topic was to at least get and intelligent discussion from the staff who are working with the software, and not have to put up with the simple comments about "it's too early" or "give it time it is still beta" - I mean it is very clear to me it is beta software, I have been watching the making of it too.
    Now on to some intelligent discussion...........
    ​Great to hear that you have found some issues and have had the chance to sort it out, this is very encouraging indeed. I know that you are all working very hard, and I know that when the software is released it will be brilliant.
    I do have faith that you guys are working very hard in making this software as efficient as possible, and from what you have just said, proves that to be the case.
    ​Go on, press it, you know you want too
    Unfortunately Marc_S you have not added much to this discussion.
    ​Yeah not so much.
    General load time of the main site (cleared cache, hence the DNS look-up time):

    And general load time of this topic, seems that the processing time has improved, so your tweaks are noted:

    But I am trusting that it will improve further over time as you suggest.
    I have much trust in that this site will improve in speed, it is clear now that you are aware of performance issues and are working hard to remedy that, and this (for me at least) is very encouraging indeed.
    P.S: I am confident in this software so much, that I have purchased (this week) Pages for the first time, because I think I may have use for it. Now it seems to be user friendly.

    and 122 seconds to submit a post? Really.........


    Wow you guys have lots of work to do, that is very clear to me.
  10. Aussie Cable added a post in a topic: Fastest software to date?   

    I don't know, but you guys (official IPS employees) keep on stating that IPS 4.0 is the fastest version of your software yet, I am not convinced.
    This is what it took to load the site today (8.8 seconds):

    This is how long it took to login (17.5 seconds):

    Now I am in Australia, and it never takes this long to load the site, it is usually only around 2 seconds to load, and about 3 to login. My own beta site is slower than my 3.4.x version. I am yet to be convinced.
    Seems I am not the only one seeing this:

    Very nice tweaks indeed.
  13. Aussie Cable added a post in a topic: IPB vs Xenforo (one has been started in Xenforo)   

    Just to prove my point....

    IPB - Faster than Xenforo:

    " alt="12999018925_dbb58c162e_o.png">

    Xenforo - slower than IPB:

    " alt="12999168933_877a034cfe_o.png">

    So my point is proven!

    IPB is faster, better, has more features than other community software - In my honest opinion.
  14. Aussie Cable added a post in a topic: IPB vs Xenforo (one has been started in Xenforo)   


    So it seems I have to prove to YOU that XF is faster than IPB. Go figure.....

    In my opinion, I have already done this, yet no-one here has proven to me that XF is faster than IPB. NO PROOF

    zero, zip, zippo, nada, zilch , bupkis, null, utterly void , Big Fat Goose Egg, Nothing, nuttin', nunca, blank nichts, nein, nie, Nil, Naught! Semantics? Go figure.

    I guess if I need the data (which I dont), I gotta do it myself, but yet to see anyone prove it is.

    I still see no proof from the people procrastinating about this. Show me proof and I will shut up :smile:
