Statistics Not Updating

  • Hi,

    Installed WoltLab Core and the Forum yesterday. I've noticed that the statistics aren't updating properly sometimes. For example, a new user just registered a few minutes ago but they are not showing up as the latest user to have registered (instant confirmation). Previously, the post counts would update properly if I manually recounted them from the backend.

    Is this normal and does it take time to update? Or is there something wrong on my side?


  • Hello,

    Stats aren't fetched live, because as the community grows, the effort to compute them can become more and more challenging for the database. Instead, we use a cache that has a maximum lifetime of 600 seconds, which means that it will renew itself after 10 minutes, until then, it will return the previously computed values.
