Alex said here that, "If your site doesn't handle 100,000 AMEMBER pages views daily, you don't need this caching." (meaning Smarty caching) I am expecting that kind of traffic on my site, and despite the apparent fact that, "Smarty is useless on shared hosts because of permission problems. We have this resolved but with some performance penalty" because caching cannot be enabled, on my host, which is the equivalent of a VPS (Virtual Private Server), the user permissions setup is very different to that of a normal shared hosting environment. This means the user permissions on my server allow the generation of Smarty cache files and folders without problems. (I am soon moving to a dedicated server anyway) If I changed the following in Smarty.class.php from, PHP: var $caching = 0; to, PHP: var $caching = 2; could I turn on Smarty caching in aMember without problems? If this won't enable Smarty caching for aMember, how else can I enable it? Thanks very much for your help!
