I'm doing the ground work for my first forum site and have decide that I'm going to use MyBB or PHPBB.
I'm now trying to decide whether to go shared or VPS and what server spec I'll need.
Can anyone here who uses MyBB or PHPBB give me some pointers please.
What spec CPU,HD,Ram should I go for to start up with VPS.
Based on our plans and guestimates below should I even consider shared or is that just a nine starter?
If you use MyBB or PHPBB I'd be very interested to hear your spec/traffic/user numbers and experience.
I know I'm being a bit cheeky but this kind of information might save us from going the wrong way and I'm therefore prepared to ask a cheeky question.
== Guestimates ==
I'm hoping to build to around 10,000 members by the end of year 2. Based on the numbers in our real world customer base and visitors to other on-topic websites that we operate, I'd be disappointed if it was less than this but would be very surprised if I got more than double that number.
