Extra Tuned For blazing fast SocialEngine 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 outperforms traditional spinning hard-disk drives and provides 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.

Military Grade security

Free Daily Backups

We are automatically and constantly snapping five copies of your SocialEngine social network's database and files, making sure you always have a way back. Restoration is provided free of charge.

Free Unlimited SpamExperts

Each mailbox you create for your needs will be protected from unwanted messages in real time. SpamExperts is an industry leading anti-spam tool we provide across all our servers.

CloudLinux & Account Isolation

Your SocialEngine social network will be provisioned in a fully  isolated, CloudLinux powered hosting environment, allowing for greater security & monitoring.

SocialEngine faq

Yes, as an official partner we have servers specifically optimized for SocialEngine. They can ensure maximum performance for our customers websites and can run the application objectively better than anyone else on the market.

SocialEngine PHP is one of the best Social Network platforms available on the market. It is quite flexible and easily customizable, which means it is suitable for all kind of users. SocialEngine PHP provides a free trial of the application so that you can review and test the features that this outstanding script will provide you with.

The biggest benefit of SocialEngine PHP is that it will allow you to create an unbranded network that you can customize in any way you wish to. Unlike most licensed platforms, SocialEngine PHP provides you with fully unencrypted source code, which gives you the opportunity to add plenty of custom features. It comes with 100% ownership and complete control.

All frequently released minor updates of the SocialEngine PHP version are free of charge . There is a small fee for the major updates that varies between $25 and $50. However, it is great value for money as they always provide much better functionality and excellent improvements.

The modules are extensions which will enhance the capabilities and will provide extra features to your application. SocialEngine PHP offers an easy installation method. In order to install modules, login to your SocialEngine Admin Panel > Manage > Packages and Plugins.


Once you have opened it click on Install New Packages, then navigate to Add Packages and upload the ones you would like to use. Note that all SocialEngine packages come with the .tar extension. You can then follow the installation instructions of the module you have chosen. Most of them have a license key and you might be asked to provide it during the process.

The themes are extensions which will change the layout of your website completely, they will also  make it more user friendly. In order to install a new Theme to your SocialEngine PHP script, simply go to SocialEngine Admin Panel > Manage Packages and Plugins.


Once you have done it you will see the Install New Packages button, press it and then click on Add Packages, after that choose upload and select the archive containing the theme. Note that SocialEngine’s extensions come only in .tar format. Once the file has been uploaded press Continue and follow the steps provided during the process. Some SocialEngine themes require license key in order to be installed and you might be asked to provide it.

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


Send through SMTP - Send emails through SMTP server; SMTP Server Address - enter the SMTP Server hostname (example mail.yourdomain.com); 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 that you would like to link to the script; SMTP Password - Enter the password for the email account in question; 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 website during a development process. Once it has been activated the visitors will reach the maintenance page and only people with access code will be able to open it.

In order to enable Maintenance Mode simply go to Admin Panel > Settings > General Settings, you will then see Maintenance Mode, with two radio buttons - Online and Offline, choose the Offline one. Once the work is done you can go back and change it to Online.

If you are using the free SocialEngine trial you can easily upgrade to the paid version without loosing any of the website content. It is recommended to review the official SocialEngine tutorial by following this link.

The SocialEngine application is designed in such way that the domain name on which it is installed is not hardcoded among the files. Having this in mind it is good to know that you should only change the domain name for the license you are using.


In order to do this you will have to login to your account with SocialEngine, once you have done it, you will see SocialEngine PHP License under the My Account menu, simply press on the button Dashboard which will redirect you to a new window where you will see SocialEngine PHP Licenses, this field should be containing the domain name under which you will host this particular SocialEngine installation, change it with the new one you would like to use and you are all set and ready.

SocialEngine provides you with the feature of having multiple application error_logs. In order to access the data you need go to your Admin Panel, hover over the Stats tab and you will see Log Browser. Once there, you should be able to see a drop-down menu where you can choose the error_log you want to inspect, select it, as well as the number 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 a developer.
