You can send Novius OS on a production server using many way:
However, regardless the method you choose, you will have to change few configuration settings to improve optimization.
The first step is to change the Fuel environment (stored in Fuel::$env). This will automatically adapt few settings such as cache length or logs level. The FuelPHP website explains how to change this environment.
You can do it by changing SetEnv in the Apache configuration.
SetEnv FUEL_ENV production // or SetEnv NOS_ENV production
You need to add the production key into local/config/db.config.php. The configuration can be quite similar than the one of development; if you installed the instance on the production server, you just have to rename the development key to production. This is very well documented in the FuelPHP website.
Cache duration is adapted if the environment is set to production. You can however customize it by changing local/config/config.php file.
return array( 'novius-os' => array( 'cache' => true, // When on production environment, durations are 3600 seconds by default 'cache_duration_page' => 3600, // page cache duration 'cache_duration_function' => 3600, // custom (applications) cache duration 'cache_model_properties' => false, // does Novius OS store model properties into cache. Applies only to // models where properties where not defined ), );
