    that's all I run on it now. I have plans for a few more sites, though.

    I got the unlimited deal because Interland was trying to build the numbers for their IPO and were offering outrageous deals.

    That server only costs me $700/month for the next year. After that I have to renegotiate. The crash the other night will come into play when I renegotiate

    It normally runs at about 10% load and spikes ocassionally to 100%, but that's PHP running as CGI instead of as a module. During the short burst I was able to keep it running as a module it would spike at 5%.

    The server you mentioned above is solely for your vB forum?

    How do you afford to run a dedicated server like that and how did you ever get unlimited traffic from anyone?

    Thanks

    thanks

    well, what you're seeing is a shadow of what it normally is. There was a power outage at the serve farm the other night and the *******s had a bad UPS on my server. There *were* 10k+ topics, 200k+ posts. What you see now is the last 42 hours.

    The server:

    Dual PIII 600
    NT 4/IIS 4
    512 Mb 100 mHz SDRAM
    mySQL 3.22.14 as a process (needs to be compiled as threaded)
    PHP 4.0.1 PL1 (need to get PL2) run as CGI (have probs as a module under IIS)

    I'm going to install and test Apache to see if I can run PHP as a module with it. If so, I will kill IIS.

    A lot of people are running it fine on a lot less. I do have one of the most active vB's, though, with about 60k PV's/day and I use about 2Gb/day Bandwidth. I have HTML and Images on, too. My users tend to get a little carried away with it. Luckily I have unlimited bandwidth.

    You should be able to run it faster on Linux than I can on NT. You should definitely get 256 Mb memory or more, though. A lot less probs like that.

    BTW, excellent content at atforumz.com.

    What kind of bandwidth/hardware do you require to run a vB similar to yours? I am currently thinking of setting up a forum just like it here in Montreal. I have a dedicated Linux server with 24 domains on it already. Here are my specs:

    Celeron 366
    128 megs Ram
    6.4 gb hard drive
    Red Hat 6.1
    I have 50gb of bandwidth included with the server (of which I have only used 5gb per month)
    I don't have mySQL installed on it though (only postgreSQL)

    I would probably upgrade the ram to 256 megs if I installed vB.


    Just trying to get an understanding of what it would take to run a forum like yours.

    Thanks in advance.

    they're a tad touchy about this forum over there...

    I'm glad you like it. It's working out great on my site so far

    Just checking to see if you censor....

    This is my first post to this forum. I'm really impressed with the speed of vB. I tried to discuss vB at the UBB forum and every instance of the work vBulletin gets censored. Seems like an excellent product so far.
