Please feel free to share a link back to your own forums in this section. It's good for other people to get an idea of what is out there, and what can currently be achieved.
https://klocksnack.se This is hosted on a Dedicated Server provided and fully managed by me. Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1270 v6 @ 3.80GHz 32GB DDR4 ECC 2x512GB PM961 NVMe Raid1 Heavily optimised nginx / php-fpm / MariaDB setup with centminmod. The site is very image heavy, and has done 4.5TB of bandwidth in the last 30 days. The site runs very well on this setup.
Gaming Forums I went for this package and the above link is the result. Thanks Matt!
I've been doing some work in the background on this site, and I've made quite a few changes to how it's configured. It's been on many different setups (single VPS with cPanel, single VPS with centminmod nginx build, dedicated server with centminmod nginx build). The current setup is running on 5 x 1GB Linode VPS. 3 back end servers (all synced with each other) GlusterFS for the web files MariaDB 10.2 with Galera Cluster and rsync replication Elasticsearch 5.6.1 3 node setup Memcached 2 x front end servers nginx 1.13 php 7.0.x haproxy 1.7.9 haproxy is configured to allow load balancing across the ES nodes (balance roundrobin), and the Galera Cluster (balance source). All configured on the loopback IP to ensure the config can remain the same. DNS is handled by DNSMadeEasy, and it's running with ANAME records ANAME Records | DNS Made Easy
This is a site that was almost 2 years in the making. I came on board to assist in cleaning up and finishing off after the previous designer left the company. The site was moved to my shared hosting, and we finished off the design, including setting up and customizing the gallery from an existing wordpress plugin. Home - Campbell's Flowers The next task for this site is going to be converting it over to HTTPS.
This is my own personal site, that got me started with hosting and XenForo. I also run an OpenCart store on there. Z22SE.co.uk I've been running the site for 8 years, on various hosting packages, and server set-ups. The current set-up is as follows Host: SoYouStart Server Spec: E3-1225 V2 @ 3.20GHz / 32GB RAM / 2 x 120GB Intel SSD DC S3500 Series in raid1 Webserver: Nginx 1.7.0 + SPDY PHP-FPM: PHP5.5.12 + ZendOpcache Database: MariaDB 5.5.37 Extras: Memcached 1.4.17, Elasticsearch 1.1
https://boxerworld.com/forums This was my first VB3 conversion to XenForo, and included a conversion of a large gallery to XenMediaGallery. With a bit of help from @Chris D, the gallery import was completed, and the site is running very well. It's hosted on a SoYouStart dedicated server running cPanel that has been installed and set up by myself.
https://www.truckmountforums.com/ This was a dedicated server setup, along with an import from Plesk into cPanel. The import was done by cPanel staff, but left quite a bit broken on each of the sites. The aim was to minimize downtime during the migration, so everything was tested prior to switching the sites over.
A brand new and very worth site I'm hosting for @Teddington https://childhoodleukaemiaforum.co.uk/
I was contacted by Matt to help set up his CentMinMod VPS from Linode after a couple of failed self installs. https://community.centminmod.com/threads/place-to-hire-someone-to-set-up-my-website.1509/ It's running on a 2GB Linode VPS. Matt can now focus on the community without having to worry about the technical stuff.
@Disciple of Nagash originally contacted me to take a look at his existing VPS setup. After continuing problems with the hosting, last night, I built and migrated his site to a VPS with Linode. http://www.vampirecounts.net/ The VPS is running the Performance RPM's provided by @Floren via Axivo.com PHP 5.6 MariaDB 10.0.13 nginx 1.7.4 [root@host ~]# uptime 14:40:11 up 18:45, 1 user, load average: 0.02, 0.03, 0.09 [root@host ~]#
I was initially contacted back in November by Russ on XenForo enquiring about tweaking their VPS with Wiredtree. I was contacted tonight by @Qwk86gn to start the work. It's a standard Wiredtree VPS running CentOS6.5 and Cpanel. The major site on there is titanpunch.com which is having a decent growth in traffic with the impending release of the game. Further details on the progress of the site can be found here: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/titan-punch-titanfall-community.69387/ The VPS was running suPHP and a basic my.cnf config. I switched the site to mod_ruid2, and tuned MySQL based on XenForo making heavy use of InnoDB. Prior to work done: After work done: 0.37 seconds down to 0.21 seconds. There is still further work to be done, as their other site needs ionCube enabled for the cart add-on. Once they have migrated that site off, I'll be doing more work and enabling Xcache and configuring that up, so they can make use of OPCode Caching and storing the sessions in memory.
This is a site I've been helping administer since 2006. Earlier this year, I converted it from phpBB3 to XenForo, and it's currently hosted on my cPanel shared hosting platform (https://mattwservices.co.uk/resources/large-package.35/). https://www.britishmods.com/forum It's currently in the process of being sold on, and I'll be helping the new owner with the hosting and running of the site still.
