Extra Tuned For blazing fastSocialEngine Performance

SSD

Page load time is one of the most important factors for keeping your social network users happy and online. All our servers are using Solid-State drives (SSD) as a foundation for their performance. SSD massively outperform traditional spinning hard-disk drives and provide up to 20 times faster page load time for your SocialEngine social network.

CDN

Social networks are all about connecting people and your users geographical proximity to your SocialEngine's server may vary. Serving your website via CDN (Content Delivery Network) greatly improves speed as it serves from the closest available location to your users, thus delivering your content faster. We provide you with a CLoudFlare CDN on/off switch in your cPanel.

OpCache

OpCache improves PHP performance by storing precompiled script bytecode in shared memory,  thereby removing the need for PHP to load and parse scripts on each request. This gives a great boost to the time your SocialEngine social network needs to load and makes your users happy. It is a feature included and enabled by default for your account.

Memcached 256MB

Memcached is a caching engine used to speed up dynamic, database-driven websites by caching data and objects in RAM to reduce their load time. SocialEngine has in-built support for memcached and it is the native method of caching it promotes. You get a dedicated 256MB memcached instance, preinstalled on your account with us.

Unlike most licensed platforms, SocialEngine PHP provides you with fully un-encrypted source code, which gives you the option to add some custom features.

SocialEngine PHP provides free updates for the minor versions of the application, who are released frequently, usually once per month. However, major updates have a small upgrade fee, this fee is usually between 25$ US to 50$ US, but rest assured that the fee is nothing, compared to the functionality and improvements that the upgrade will give you.

Modules are extensions which will enhance the capabilities and extra features to your application. SocialEngine PHP provides an easy package installation method, in order to install modules login to your SocialEngine admin panel > Manage > Packages and Plugins.

Once you have opened the Package Manager of Social Engine click on “Install New Packages”, click on “Add Packages” and upload the packages you want to install, note that SocialEngine packages only come with the extension .tar, which means the uploaded package should be a .tar file. From there follow the instructions for the installation of the module you have chosen, most of the modules for SocialEngine have a License-Key and you will be asked to provide it during the installation process.

Themes are extensions which will change the layout of your website completely, also they will make your website more user friendly for your users. In order to install a new Theme to your SocialEngine PHP script, simply go to SocialEgnine admin panel > Manage > Packages and Plugins.

Once you have done this you will be located into the Manage Packages page, where you can see “Install New Packages” button, press it and then you will see a new button “Add Packages”, click on it press upload and upload the archive containing the theme installation, note that SocialEngine’s extensions come only in .tar format, once the file has been uploaded press “Continue” and follow the installation steps provided in the installation process of the theme you have chosen. Some SocialEngine themes require License-Key in order to be installed and you will be asked to provide it the during the installation of such theme.

SocialEngine provides a built in Mail Settings, which supports SMTP. In order to configure the Mail Settings of your SocialEngine application to use SMTP, go to the Admin Panel > Settings > Mail Settings, once you have accessed the Mail Settings page edit the following options:

Send trough SMTP > Send emails through an SMTP server, SMTP Server Address > enter the SMTP Server Address (example mail.yourdomain.com), SMTP Server Port > For SMTP Server Port use port 25, SMTP Authentication? > It is important to turn the SMTP Authentication to “Yes” otherwise the SMTP will not work properly, SMTP Username > Enter the email account which you want to associate with your application, SMTP Password > Enter the password for the email account you are associating with your application, Use SSL or TLS? > You have to set this to None, due to the fact that you have chosen Port 25.(In case you want to use SSL or TLS, change the port to 465 for SSL and 587 for TLS).

Maintenance mode prevents users from accessing the site, instead accessing your website they will access the maintenance page of your website, and only people who have the maintenance mode access code will be able to access the website.

In order to put your website under Maintenance Mode simply go to Admin Panel > Settings > General Settings, you will see Maintenance Mode, with two radio buttons Online and Offline (Maintenance Mode), choose offline in order for the Maintenance Mode of your website to become active.

Once there, you will see a drop-down menu from which you can choose the error_log you want to inspect, select the log and the amount of lines you would like to see and press the “View Log”.

After you have a clear view and understanding of what the issue is you can begin troubleshooting it or seek professional help from a SocialEngine support or developer.
