What is the server feature called which enables friendly search URLs at an appropiate speed?

JG for your info i'm quite into SEO and I have seen 0 difference between my SEO URL SMF forums and non SEO.

SMF is very well spidered.

The search engines move fast and I think they have overtaken this issue personally.

2) The server does not support the rewriting of the URL's. If I went to forum/index.php/board,1,0.html it would error. Now I assume this is the server not supporting mod_rewrite or php not running in the correct mode.

It doesn't use mod_rewrite, just Apache's path info.  I should note, however, that there are known bugs in PHP 4.2.x's output buffering, and while SMF generally works around them it's possible that another could have surfaced in this configuration (since basically every option seems to be enabled in the configure?)

I would still, and in light of this information even more, suggest updating PHP.

What is the server feature called which enables friendly search URLs at an appropiate speed?

"Being configured properly" and "not using CGI mode".  To be fair, I was always against adding this feature into SMF by default because it is so server specific.

Please start new topics for new requests...

You load averages are currently okay, under 0.20.  Swap usage is okay.  You've got zombies, which probably means Apache is segfaulting or quiting unexpectedly most of the time.

MySQL is not configured properly, and the query cache is not enabled.

For me, your forum is very quick to load.  However, the Google ad seems to be very slow, and may be making it feel sluggish.

I'm afraid all of these things can be handled only by your host or with root access.

Load averages:     1.14, 2.46, 2.32
Current processes:    126 (123 sleeping, 2 running, 1 zombie)
Processes by CPU:    httpd (19) 2.2%, [pkgacct (1) 1.1%, (other) (48) 0.9%
Memory usage:    98.363% (1011644k / 1028484k)
Swap: 14.56% (298228k / 2048276k)

This was around 6 on the load averages before... and that memory usage seems to never shift from 98% :S

Question what is the recommend LENGTH of login log ? I have my forum set to show the last 300mins ... is this a bad idea?
Or doesn't it make a difference to forum speed?

Also would any host be able to make mysql run good with SMF .. or is it pretty much hte same procedure for any forum software?

Memory usage shouldn't move around too much - it's good that swap is low and memory usage is high, although swap is a *little* higher than it should be.  You've still got a zombie there, which isn't good at all.  What's funny is CPU usage is low.

Doesn't matter at all.

It's pretty much the same - the things I recommend for server configuration would be good for any PHP software you installed on your server.
