  • vBulletin 4: we would require a server upgrade?

    Hi,

    Just two questions:
    1. vBulletin 4 will consume more bandwidth than vBulletin 3.8 series? I mean, if my forum is using 1GB of daily bandwidth when I upgrade to vBulletin 4 this amount will be maintained or I'll use more bandwith than what I actually use?
    2. vBulletin 4 will consume more RAM than vBulletin 3.8 series?

    Thank you

    1) There are too many factors missing from the equation. Chances are unless you add a lot more content and traffic increases are magnified, vBulletin 4 will result in the same or less bandwidth being used.

    2) Doubtful. PHP RAM usage is transient anyway. That means that it is only used for the period of the script running and than released. If you're site is high traffic, than you should be using FastCGI which enables you to manage memory better.

      Sorry but where talk about FastCGI and PHP, this result strange because for what I know this extension is able to manage C/C++, Java, Perl and Tcl libraries, can you explain please? This is a stick argument.
      Thanks

        PHP is faster (often 4 times or more) / eats less server resources when it's Apache handler is fcgi...
        Do you have some specific question ?

          Yes but when PHP is installed as Apache Module not CGI and vice-versa

              That meets and exceeds the current known requirements of vBulletin 4.
