Can SMF handle a very large vB 3.8.x forum conversion?

(1/2) > >>

Kestryll:
I run a very large forum, 1.2 million threads, 19.4 million posts and 290,000+ members.

I want to update the software to something more up to date.
Would SMF be able to handle a forum this big?
What issues would a forum of this size run in to with SMF if any?

landyvlad:
Not sure.
That's a massive forum alright - what's the subject matter?

The biggest SMF forum I am on has

2,460,171 Posts
117,381 Topics
9,021 members.

but I know there are numerous bigger ones out there.

No doubt someone will come along to provide an accurate answer.

vbgamer45:
Yes I have known a couple forums with over 10 million posts

Make sure you ask to join the big boards group as well. there is many ways to optimize your SMF forum.

doug_ips:
Looking at that list that vbgamer45 posted I would say yes, Smf handles large forums with ease.

Aleksi "Lex" Kilpinen:
Yes, should be doable. Mine is (only) around 3 million posts and running smoothly.
