You never know, a special deal might come up ;)

Just to keep everyone up to date, I'm still working hard on this, currently going over the created forums ACPs with a magnifying glass to make sure people don't get access to things they shouldn't.

I'll keep you all posted :)

Kcmartz if you plan to be even half or less of smfforfree you will need a VPS which allows you to use all RAM and CPU. All those SMF forums will use CPU and RAM, also if you plan to fit all those forums in one database, think again :P expect load problems abd database timeouts.

The minimum I would recommend running this on would be a VPS, however as things grow you will most likely notice a huge increase in resources and have to progress onto a larger server or stop accepting new forums.

Put simply, if you want to host 100 forums, a VPS is fine, if you want to host 100,000 forums, your going to need a lot more.

What were you thinking ? That you can host 10,000 forums on a shared server ? Great.

Multiforum owners using poor quality shared hosting, or free hosting will be the first ones to go down.  Unfortunately that means that some people will lose their created forums as a result of others incompetence, but after time the reliable multiforums will be the only ones around.  How many will succeed?  How many will fail?  I have no idea ::)

Just release it anyway games. I have a vps that is underused . I could beta test if you want.

gamesmad

Of course I'm going to release it :) I was just observing that there will unfortunately be a rush of newbie hosting providers because of this script, and a lot of them won't survive because they will overload their hosting/server.  Nothing that can really be done about that though, just means that the best will have to do more to set themselves apart from the rest :P

what if i hosted 1-5 (friends/family)? would that be better?

gamesmad

@smp420 As soon as the private beta test is over, it won't be too long I promise ;)

@Kcmartz You will have no problems hosting that many forums with a shared hosting package, as long as they don't grow a lot in size.

Well I am not even sure my friends will accept, one of my friends owns http://storms-world.com (forum.storms-world.com) and he won't since he owns one already, but I have 3 friends that like art, and might, not exactly sure, once I have a regular job that can pay for a VPS, I will def. keep this in mind, is it possible to limit their boards/etc?

Forum are supposed to be growing, so he better get ready for it.
What is even the need to host multiple forums when you cant market one properly ?

Seriously i am beginning to see the reasons why vbgammer was against this being free, but of course the decision lies with mod author.

SMF Multiforum System will be free.  I'm debating whether or not to make the admin panel a paid extra though.  Opinions?




Because SMF Multiforum System supports several other forum scripts, I have decided to adjust the way that things are being done (in terms of integration), and accordingly this has set back the first public release slightly.  Private Beta testing will start on 2nd July.  The Beta Testers will be -

If you guys would be able to sign up over at http://www.forumscommunity.com so I can assign you a usergroup, that would be great.

The first public release of SMF Multiforum System (v0.2) will be available soon, just as soon as the Beta Testers finish tearing it apart ;)
