    Hello everyone

    I recently changed to xenforo forums (phpbb) and the resource usage was really bothering me then Google started showing core web vitals with really bad scores for my site.

    I stumbled upon someone's posts showing centminmod fast server loading that pigued my interest. Then stumbled upon eva own posts and started following him on twitter. Few days later George posted his impressive core web vitals scores and that's when i thought this might be for me.

    Tried centminmod on a cheap digitalocean xenforo 2 and i am impressed from the speed. It was also a lot easier to setup than i had imagined and the great thing about centminmod is it sets up many things stock which cpanel/plesk etc doesn't especially the optimization for settings.

    Well, now the only thing holding me back from using centminmod on main site is getting my htaccess rules converted to nginx which is proving a lot harder than using centminmod :D

    Cheers

    Hey I know you! Welcome to CMM forums

    My site runs super fast, the only thing screwing me up on Core Web Vitals is the font packages. UI.X theme for Xenforo 2 uses 3 large icon files for FontAwesome and MaterialDesignIcons, but optimizing these files looks like a big pain in the ass

    I think it's xenforo in general with their fonts but uix is very slow loading. Awesome theme platform though.

    Yeah Guidedhacking is pretty fast. I was surprised to learn you are hosting it on a digitalocean VPS. By the way, i installed centminmod using your YouTube videos so kudos for that.
