SMF to IPB
Posted 29 August 2012 - 04:39 PM
Needless to say that level of growth has caused me to upgrade my hosting every couple of months. Thus I am looking for information about resource usage and I also like the IP.nexus idea as I have several members that would love to pay to advertise their own threads on the main forums.
1. With the number of users above, what sort of server specs do I need to be looking at?
2. Would the resource usage go down moving from SMF to IPB (assume I'm not using any package addons on SMF)?
3. Any other thoughts about my situation?
I appreciate everyone's time!

2) This, too, is difficult to answer. There are so many combinations of settings, addons, options, etc. that affect things greatly. I can say that IP.Board development focuses strongly on resource usage - it is very important to us, as you can imagine, since we also host the software.

ip has more base features but when smf set to mirror the features the resource usage, for me, was pretty evenly matched.
the kicker for me was ip.content and its integration, smf cannot really match it with its portal pages and smf does not offer the support level you get here.
smf is a fine product, lot of permissions and post deletion (controlled granular forum cleanups) setup I like better, but IP's benefits outweigh smf benefits to me.
