Improving Performance

  • I’d recommend everyone who is using BuddyPress on a live website to take a look at the new section on “Object Caching” on this page:

    Improving Performance

    If you’re running the trunk, you can turn this on and expect big gains in performance on your server. It’s highly recommended if you’re seeing a lot of traffic to your site.

    Great tips Andy, even though I’m currently developing my beta buddypress site on a free web space, cuz the provider where I’m gonna publish it don’t allow betas for security issues, these are great tips for my planned VPS. Lot of time saved!

    One tip from trying to set this up myself: if your wp-content directory isn’t set to a certain permission level (755 or more likely 777), you’ll have to create the cache directory yourself before the object cache can be written the first time.

    To test, load your site after enabling the object cache and see if a directory called cache is created in wp-content. If it isn’t, create it and set permissions for it:

    mkdir cache; chmod 777 cache;

    Load your site again to make sure that files are getting created inside of the cache directory.



    Sticky this, will ya!!

    I’m using Buddypress 1.0.3 with “File based” and “XCache”.

    It seems all running very well. Less query’s and a faster page load.

    But after some hours of use, the main Blog gets loaded with a theme from the user Blogs.

    After I delete all files from the cache folder, the site is back with the correct theme.

    How can I figure out this problem?

    I really like to use the object cache. But I can’t with this bug…
