Hi all,

We've today officially released v4.2 of YetiShare, our file hosting script. The focus on this release has mainly been about script performance. We've managed to get page load times down to 0.06 seconds, nearly 3 times faster than v4.1.1!

We've also reduced the amount of database queries by utilising local memory cache. One page has gone from 64 queries right down to 17, nearly 4 times faster.

For the full details on the performance improvements see our blog post here:


In addition to the performance improvements, we've also added a file search page to the script and a built in link checker.

See below for the full list of changes or go straight to the demo site here:

If you're still within your 12 months support period, you're illegible for the free upgrade from our site. Just login via and you can use the existing download link to access the update.

How to Upgrade:

To upgrade your existing install, upload the /install/ folder and see the 'Perform an Upgrade to an existing install' option. As with any changes, make sure you backup your existing code and database first. Note: Unfortunately we can't manage any custom changes you've made so you'll need to manually re-apply these.

If you're prefer us to arrange the upgrade we can do this for an upgrade fee of $39.00. We'll ensure the upgrade is configured on your site along with your original data. We can't retain any code or style changes you've made unfortunately.
