The 100 offer expired in March 2015, that is no longer offered, however we can still upgrade to the standard license at this time. I can't promise how long the free upgrade will last, but currently it's still an option. There is nothing special for a developer at this time, most developers develop and test apps locally prior to uploading to the marketplace.
If anyone needs clarification on a license on your account, please file a support ticket in customer service and we can address any specific questions or concerns you may have. These types of questions and concerns are best addressed in this manner to avoid confusion and assumptions.
We are in no way neglecting you, I'm not sure where you are sending emails too? however there are no support tickets on your account, for help with our software or any account questions, please use our official support ticket system here and we can assist you https://www.invisionpower.com/clients
They are not being rejected from what I can see, I would check your spam box or email filters, perhaps white list @invisionpower.com to ensure you are not blocking these at a mail server level. Or you can request the email be updated to another email that works better in your existing ticket.
That would only apply in some cases as it's dependent on your specific hosting setup. Not all hosts will support a user.ini file though. To work around this on an IPS level, you can add the following to your conf_global.php file though.
There are a lot of variables here, a lot of the answers would vary based on your community, which apps you are using, if you are using any third party add ons, what type of traffic and users you have etc.. I could go on and on really. The setup and configuration also plays a big part of this, for example if you select to use innodb, it can use much more memory than myisam, so therefore you would need more memory to allocate to mysql. Same with web servers, depending on what you are going to be running, memory and processing resources can vary. If this is a new community, I would recommend that you start out in our community in the cloud, this will allow you to focus on your community, and not worry about server and hosting configuration. Once things settle in, if needed, you can explore your options at that time. If you are set on a self hosted solution, and you expect your community to grow, start with a larger VPS or a smaller dedicated machine, and go from there. A good systems admin can tune a wide variety of servers and specs to run properly, room for growth and peaks would vary depending on your available resources though.
Hello, thanks for the clarification, however in testing actually performance (not a test site tool) differences there is no difference, you are only improving the results on the testing tool and not a real performance improvement. So for those that want to see a higher test score, I guess this helps, however in real world usage, loading a cookie or not is not going to improve anything from what I'm seeing here. So from what I can see so far, this does nothing more than report a better score.
