  • server load

    i'm using ubb v6 at the moment, and have anything between 10-80 people online at any one time, with an average of 80 new topics a day (not sure about how many posts).
    I'm planning to move to a shared server, which is also running ikonboard, am I going to run into problems?
    my current server already cant cope with the traffic, it keeps buggering up my boards.
    what kind of spec server should i be looking for?

    10-80 is quite a range - if, on average, you have more than 50 on at a time, you'll going to need to look at semi-dedicated servers. Take a look at's v650 plan.

      the question would also have to be asked as to how many users are on the ikonboard forum which will share your server

      a good starting server would be

      P3 1.26ghz
      1GB ram
      2 x 18GB SCSI drives
      RH 7.2/7.3
      PHP 4.1.2
      MySQL 3.23.49a
      PHP Accelerator installed
