  • Can I run vB on 128MB VPS

    Obviously the other specs are irrelevant but this VPS has

    128MB Ram

    just incase

    2GB Diskspace (vBulletin is what? Only 3MB)

    50GB Bandwith (we currently have around 70+ online at the same time)

    oh, this is from ddos hosting solutions aswell

    The space and bandwidth requirements seem fine to me, I've never really gone over 50GB bandwidth even with that same amount of people online. Not sure about the RAM, although based on my past experiences, my best guess is that it's not enough for 70 or so online at the same time.

      Will it run smooth or not?

        The other stuff is not irrelevant. And the answers to your questions depend on a lot of variables.

        If you are likely to host a lot of attachments, 50Gb bandwidth and 2 Gb of space might disappear pretty quickly. vBulletin's files are only a few Mb, but the database is what will eat up your disk space.

        Having never used a VPS, i have no idea if it will be enough for you - but I thought i'd give you some background.

          128mb is nowhere near enough in my experiences maintaining VPS accounts. Apache + PHP + MySQL eats a lot of RAM with only a dozen or so users online. You'll certainly want to drop Apache and use a light web server if you go the VPS route.

          If you can budget for a cheap dedicated server you'll have a much better experience and have a lot more dedicated memory and CPU power.

            A few things,

            Yes you could run it on the existing configuration, depending on the amount of traffic it recieves. However, eventually if you site gets too popular you will have to upgrade, or move away from apache.

              Your going to need more RAM. I would look for a VPS provider offering at least 768MB of RAM. Keep in mind you will have neighbors on this box and who knows what type of scripts, traffic etc. they may bring to effect your performance.

                Your VPS spec's seem a little low to me.

                With 2GB ram, i doubt u could host much.

                  Exactly. You CAN tune them a bit, but with 128M ram, you're not going to get a ton of performance there.

                  Again, dead on. If you can't afford a cheap ded, then get a shared hosting account until you CAN afford a ded. server

                  768 is a bit high. You can easily run vB and other stuff on 384-512M . Anything less, I wouldn't trust, anything more might be a bit excessive for just a vBulletin forum. Of course, if you're after instant success, you'd best go with a ded. server.

                  You mean disk space, not ram. You're right, you can't expect much from 2G space, but, if you're just starting your vB forum, 2 GB is a decent size. Right now, I'm just barely pushing 1GB with a forum I started around a month ago, and I've been doing a LOT of promotional stuff, so I think 2 GB should keep you happy for at least a couple months!
