vanilla with a large userbase
We are going to replace our existing forum with Vanilla. The stats are 80k daily posts and 30M pageviews a month. The users table has 2M rows, though most of them are inactive. The comments table has nearly 30M rows. We expect these figures to grow at a steady rate. I would like to make sure our install can handle a database of this size. I've followed the directions here: http://markosullivan.ca/blog/?p=491 , but I worry about what other problems might be lurking around the corner. Does anyone have any pointers about what I might tweak to deal with a forum of this size?
