mooSocial 2.6.2 Release

2621

Hello!

This minor release addresses ONE issue that was reported by clients who’re using paypal adaptive payment gateway. PayPal Adaptive is one of the popular and flexible payment gateway but to use it you need to generate Live Application ID. The process to generate this LIVE ID is very complicated and normally it requires professional help.

Paypal express checkout payment gateway is added in to this version that fixed the above issue. You can get Application ID for paypal express checkout gateway just a few simple steps.

Improvements Made:

+ Added paypal express check out payment gateway.

Please Note:

+ Some plugins such as stores and business directory are not compatible with paypal express check out gateway yet. We need around 1-> 2 weeks to make them compatible.

+ DO NOT upgrade your live site until you have a full backup of your site’s files, database and have successfully performed a test upgrade on your development (test) site first.

+ Download 2.6.2 package at mooSocial client area and follow the instructions in the below link to upgrade. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

New in mooSocial 2.6.0: Remote Cloud Storage, Content Delivery Network and PHP 7 Compatibility

262

mooSocial just got a new update! We are proud to let you know the availability of mooSocial version 2.6.0. The theme of this version is Cloud, Speed and more Speed. Along with few minor updates and bug fixes, this version’s major improvements are Remote Cloud Storage, Content Delivery Network and PHP 7 Compatibility.

Amazon Simple Storage Service (AWS S3) is now supported. Scale your site storage into the cloud beyond your server’s network speed and local storage capacity. With S3 designed to deliver 99.999999999% durability, 99.99% availability and scale past trillions of objects worldwide, you no longer need to worry about data loss or server’s limitation. You can now focus on growing your mooSocial community with mega contents and stop worrying where they should be stored.

Turn up the speed of your mooSocial community site with Amazon CloudFront Content Delivery Network (CDN). CDN is now supported! It works seamlessly with S3 cloud storage or local storage. Using CDN to bring your data closer to your users will accelerate your site’s delivery. Regardless how geographically dispersed your users are, requests for your content are automatically routed to the nearest CloudFront’s edge location, so content is delivered with the best possible performance. With CDN, your site is practically running nearby of your users.

mooSocial run efficient and much faster with PHP 7. Long were the days of PHP 6. Wait… was there…?!? It is estimated that PHP 7 offers a 100 percent improvement in performance speed over PHP 5.6. PHP7 places substantially less demands on servers. Give mooSocial a try on PHP7, you will see a world of improvement on speed.

Below is a list of minor improvements and bug fixes included in this version. Be brave! Let us know immediately if you spot any bugs in our script or have any improvement suggestions. We will be glad to look into them and hopefully to include in upcoming versions for everyone.
