Vanilla 1 is no longer supported or maintained. If you need a copy, you can get it here.
Multiple Machine enviroment
I'm interested in finding out the scalability of this forum software, How does it scale across multiple machines? I'm not really concerneed with DB backend (mysql clusters are rather easy to setup), But with Vanilla on the frontend. Can they share 1 DB backend? How does Vanilla handle sessions, If you go from Machine 1, and are bounced over to machine 8 cause of the Loadbalancer will it gracefully pick up and carry on, or will Vanilla prompt the user with a login box, or a permision denied to post (cause you were in the middle of a post when you bounced for example).
