This is scarry as s**t! You don’t know what “command not found” means but you run a script that deletes files…your next thread will probably be, “help, i accidentally deleted all my server files, how can i restore them?”.

Don’t take it as an offence, but don’t run scripts where you don’t know what the outcome can be.

How about “erase all content and settings” option?

It has to be one of those, i don’t remember exactly which one, so i assume is this?

Reset your phone on factory settings. This will erase absolutely all data on it and you can start from scratch using your own apple id.

Settings -> general -> reset -> reset all settings

Except I have to solve performance problems for my clients and the problems with woocommerce performance are NOT in the database when you’re running a large store, they are in PHP. The code in question is some pretty crappy core Wordpress and core WooCommerce code which iterates through every product in your database in order to perform category counts. The mysql code for this with 130,000 products runs on an 8-core VPS in 200ms but then the iteration through all these products in PHP takes 180+ seconds.

I see… I don’t use wp/woo at all for the reasons i listed above, but from what you’re saying, it’s pretty bad.

Thanks for sharing though, helps others avoid this pitfall ;)

I meant measurable against an opcode cache not plain php of course. Don’t jump ship that easy, you’re not facebook to have issues with php itself, but rather with the database usage, and hhvm can’t help you there.

However, Magento is fundamentally using an EAV data structure which by necessity requires a lot of caching and indexing with consequently periodic heavy server loads. In this respect, Magento was in my opinion doomed to failure right from the beginning (at least as a deployed system) as these problems are not trivial to fix for companies without unlimited budgets and there is no instruction manual that helps.

No. There simply are things that you cannot do without using the EAV model, it’s just impossible. The alternative to the EAV model is to have dozen columns in your tables and be able to add/remove columns depending on your data, which fails big time if you’re modeling your data in a MVC architecture where you need to write queries depending on your columns, and you do need to do that. So no, EAV isn’t bad, it’s just slow by nature and there’s no replacement in rdbms world.

As for using hhvm/hack, this is questionable if all what you are doing is to use the original php files and not writing your code in hack where the compiler can then optimize your code. You could as well use an opcode cache and get same, if not better, performance improvements.

For the OP, wordpress itself isn’t really the fastest cms out there and it will easily cripple small vps’es. But again, if performance is your concern, throw it on powerful machine(s) and be done with it, hardware is cheap nowadays. Anyway, i personally am against using things on top of things that were not designed to do those things in the first place, if you get what i mean. It’s like using PHP for doing networking stuff, surely it’s possible, slow as hell and restrictive, but possible. On the other hand C is a better tool for this.

Somebody recommended setting up varnish, but last time when i checked(this might have been changed from then), varnish over ssl was a nightmare to setup and when you get it going, you get all sort of nasty surprizes.

Just my 2 cents.

Why should we be given this opportunity?

Then the leverage buyers have against authors would go away and i think this is somehow unacceptable given the fact we are asking to do something about the rating system for years now. It won’t be done, simple.

@doru Quality control? Are you(actually they) kidding me? Right now, on codecanyon landing page in the new php scripts tab(ajax one) there are 2 scripts with serious XSS exploits(i know because i messed up their demos, and these are exactly just the two scripts i tested, i am sure i can find exploits for most of them if i struggle).

So where’s the quality control a buyer is paying for?
