Database change (Redis) and recent updates

In this post I am going to tell you guys about the recent changes at BeeIMG that were made during the past few days.

We did a major change in storing the image views. We changed from MySQL to Redis, which will hopefully decrease the image serving time. If we had MySQL further soon it will get overloaded due to the high image views we are receiving. only image views are stored on Redis and every 30 minutes the MySQL server will also get updated. so you can only view live stats via the image view page.

Why use BeeIMG & How it Works

Image
Nowadays there are tons and tons of image hosting sites to choose from. Most of them are powered with chevereto(A Premium script), scripts available at codecanyon(Premium scripts) and using scripts that are available for free. Newbies who want to earn money buys and put these scripts in a server and offer the service for free. only a handful of sites use their own scripts.

We BeeIMG are trying to develop a script using most popular programming languages in this planet and offer features that other sites don't offer for Free!.

We can start with the image serving process. It uses PHP to serve you the image other than linking to it directly. It's like a virtual image and the best thing is we have total control over the link you share with world. your images are safe and sound in another place in the server. we sent headers according to our needs and redirect to a CDN if the sever load is high. also image tracking and bandwith calculating is also possible with this system. using thi…
