  • Hardware requirement

    We are currently running Web wiz and looking to switch board, so currently 400+ users, peeks active users at 50-60 average, and 100-200 post a day. Those stats will triple in the next month. What kind of server specs would recommand if we are running Windows Server 2003.

    Thank you.

    I don't think you'll need much. Maybe a decent 2.8GHz P4, with 2GB of RAM and a 120GB hard drive..

      Thanks for the reply. We use presently a P4 2.4 with 2 gig of ram. The board is a web wiz forum and as soon as 50+ more active user on the board it really is crawling 5-10 sec load time per page. Using MSSQL.

        If you are using a dedicated server, you should be fine. If you are using shared, that's a different story and I wouldn't be able to tell you what will happen.

            Most likely you should survive. Some boards have had 1,000 concurrent users with minimal problems.

            However I suspect they are running Duel Xeons, with 4GB of RAM

              But anyway we'll switch board and see after that. Since we need to do a conversion we have to get the new board installed on the same server, import, then if required move the data to a new box.

                I would make make a SQL dump of your current database, and then upload it onto your new server, if at all possible.

                From there use the WebWiz (7.9) importer script and convert your data after you install vBulletin via Impex.

                  Data from WWF is on MSSQL not MYSQL, that would require to reinstall MSSQL on the new server and transfer the DB and create more down time for users.

                    MMM..you're right. So probably doing everything on your current server, do a MySQL Dump and then reimport it onto your new server, and you should be fine.

                      While we are at it, is there good file manager out there for Vb forum user. I'd love to be able to give groups disk space to store files. I've used ew filemanager for PN in the past, wonder if something similar exist for Vb. IPB has one but doesn't seem to integrate with Boards users/groups.

                        Would this suffice?

                          Not really, this seem to be like weblink and download section of a postnuke, if you now about pn. I don't beleive you can upload file or delete them, and create subfolder.

                          For IPB http://www.invisionfilemanager.com/
                          For PN/PHPBB http://home.postnuke.ru/index.php?mo...istcat&catid=2

                          Is there any thing similar to a FTP but using web/php interface?

                              That sounds like a other intersting scripts, but doesn't let user upload files.
