Great work, the forum is fast and haven't had any timeout errors since then.

For SMF usually size of db is 100k posts = 100MB.

I'd agree with that as a rough guide, give or take 25% from that. However remember that the docs site also (AFAIK) runs off the forum database too, meaning the database size is higher than 'normal'

Go to the 3rd page, metallica said that the community DB is nearing 3 GB.

Bono_: your calculations really don't have much to do with how much RAM is needed for the server.

I just wondered how big is database, sure you will not buy server that will match your current needs. You will try to get one that can handle raise in traffic in next year or two.

It is nice that you shared specs, usually people hide them like it's top secret.

These two forums have been around far longer than most. IMO, they are the most popular.
Free - phpBB
Paid - vBulletin

Out of all those, I think that Simple Machines LLC is much better than phpBB and vBulletin.  I've tried out many other forums, I personally like this one the best.

I hope other feel the same way.

You're correct.

I've had quite a few "arguments" with a friend of mine that's a devoted phpbb fan. Usually things come down to preference in the end, different things done in different ways - and one likes the other better. :) Both are actually quite good forum softwares - but I couldn't think of swtiching over to phpbb myself ;)

Creating topics and posting is much easier with smf than vBulletin.

I believe its a matter of choice. Some might think the same in vB's favor. I personally prefer SMF.

Do you use MySQL DB or else?

Thanks.
Freedom of speech? It is freer if not speaking out.

I'm 99.9% certain they use a MySQL server - remember there was a time when SMF only supported MySQL, and it seems unlikely that SMF would have migrated to a new DB system.

True.  Also, in phpBB, it's really hard to install modifications.  When here, it's just like that.
