      I believe someone has already asked the similar question, but I would like to ask my own question:

      I am running a forum and it's getting popular. There are always about 100 people online at the same time for about 6 hours per day and the daily transfer is about 1GB. (new novel posting forum).

      I want to know whether Raq4 is powerful enough to handle this kind of traffic? Do I have to add more ram to make the forum run smoother?

      Thanks.

        I'm not confident that a RaQ would be able to handle that..it might be though. You'll need to wait for one of the experts to help on that one

        Thanks for the advice The Realist - in the end I decided to wait a little while and get a proper dedicated server instead of a RaQ, which I have now done (from pwebtech.com).

          i have a raq4 with rackshack.net - 512 megs ram. anythings over 90 users online at one time and things go nuts. i have the load limit set to 5.75 and still get the "server busy" message ALOT. the server goes down about once or twice a week. i was "unoffically" told by a rackshack tech that the raq just couldn't handle it. works well for 50-60 user (max) on at one time but anything more and trouble starts.

          i have switched to http://www.interserver.net - they offer a great price on 1000 mhz machines for a little bit more than you will pay for a maxed out raq with rackshack.

          i would suggest hitting http://www.webhostingtalk.com/ before deciding on going with anyone. that place is great for getting real feedback on hosting

          you can't beat rackshack for small sites but when i got into the same traffic you are talking about i just got alot of problems.

            James - just wondering if you got the deal I posted in the below thread: -

            http://vbulletin.com/forum/showthrea...threadid=23897

            Let us know how it goes with Pegasus as I may move to a dedicated later in the year.

            Cheers

              I actually got an even better deal than that - PIII 750, 256Mb, 30GB for $100/mo.

              I thoroughly recommend Pegasus...the server is fast, support is good and I have had no problems so far (well, other than me mucking up my DNS entries but that was my fault and easily solved )

                Which version of MySQL do you use?

                  Was that a deal you negotiated or one they had on offer ?

                    Negotiated I believe. It wasn't me who found the server...it was a friend of mins who was going to get it but decided not to and asked if I wanted it.

                      whatever one comes installed on the RAQ with rackshack

                        I ask because I think that the newer RaQ MySQL packages cause heavy CPU load much faster that the older 3.22.32 package.

                          Not MySQL!
