system requirements for large forum
I'm going to be building a forum that could wind up being very large... at least hundreds of active users, but it could number in the thousands. How does Vanilla handle that kind of overhead? Am I going to need a dedicated server if we hit membership in the thousands? What if it's only in the hundreds, but they're very active? Also, there's a possibility that I will need to install this on a Windows server. Assuming that PHP and MySQL are there, will this be okay, or are there some drawbacks or issues?
