  • Limit users/guests

    What would be the easiest way to go about limiting the amount of simultaneous users/guests on at any one point?

    What would be the purpose of limiting the amount of users on your forum? Isn't the point of a forum to have a lot of [active] users/members?

      The closest thing is this:

      Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Server Settings and Optimization Options -> *NIX Server Load Limit

        If our server could handle the amount of people accessing our forum, then sure, but it can't and upgrading to another server isn't an option at the moment.

          Got it. It'd be kind of nice if I had that problem to worry about. Good luck.

            The things is, our server loads are fine, it's down to the memory usage I think.

              Anyone know of a way to solve this issue?

              We're recieving countless blank pages when our forums are flooded with guests. Disallowing guests isn't an option, nor is upgrading servers.

              There must be some way to limit the amount of guests viewing at any one time.

                Sorry, there is no function to do this. This requires modifying the code. We cannot officially support code modifications or forums running modified code, however you can try searching or asking for help with this over at www.vbulletin.org.
