  • important question!!!!!!!!

    o.k. my friend told me that the VBulletin database is heavy but i got only 45 SQL MB and do you think that will be enough for 500 hundred people online each minute?
    or does it have a way of reduce the databese SQL MB?

    So important it needed 8 exclamation points. Every pre-sales question gets equal attention.

    MySQL database size and number of online simultaneous users are two unrelated issues.

    45MB is completely insufficient for a growing vBulletin forum. vB default install uses ~5MB of your database. I'm up to 400MB after 3 years with 35-50 online users at peak times. If you have 500 simultaneous users, they will be posting threads and posts so fast you'll need 1GB by the end of the first year. You should select a web host with room to grow, preferably one that doesn't nickel-and-dime you on database size (professional web hosts count your MySQL databases as part of your total storage) or number of queries (PowWeb counts the # of queries you do which can make maintenance and upgrades difficult).

    500 simultaneous users would put you in the top .1% of vBulletin users traffic-wise and would require a dual P4/Xeon ~3 or 4GHz dedicated server with RAIDed hard drives. We're talking $150-300 a month web hosting bill. Are you sure it's going to be that busy?

        It is absurd to have a 25GB web site and only 45MB (.04GB) for SQL. Who is your current web host? I think there is maybe some misinterpretation going on here.

        If your web host only allows 45MB for your MySQL database and you go over, your website crashes!

                Good hosting companies do not HAVE a SQL quota.

                    He wasn't flaming the company. He was simply saying that reliable hosts will not have quotas. You have to realize the amount of unreliable hosts that are available today, whether free or paid.

                        I think the point that feldon and a few others are trying to make is that, if you are on a good, reliable host, there will be no such thing as an SQL quota restricting you.

                            You do not need an SQL quota. An SQL quota is a limit; stay away from things like that which limit you.

                            vBulletin needs a server with PHP/MySQL installed.
