Recommended server reqs to run IPB?

Recommended Posts

Invision lists some software reqs (PHP, MySQL version, etc.) but doesn't really go beyond that into what memory, cpu, disk, etc. are required.

I have a VPS with a very good provider (buyvm.net) - 1GB memory, share of 4 CPUs, fast disk, Debian. It's OpenVZ. Right now I have a half-dozen low-traffic Wordpress blogs. It's running nginx with php-fpm, and I have it setup for 15 nging processes/fpm workers.

There's usually 1-3 concurrent connections now (much more often 1).

The board I'm starting is brand new and focused on a particular technology so it will take a while before it gets big.

I also have an AWS t1 micro instance (613MB of RAM) with nothing running on it. That is another option.

I'm also thinking about Litespeed vs. nginx, though I am not going to spend the money for the enterprise edition - it would just be the free edition of LS.

This is more than adequate to start off with. I've been running my forum since about 2004. I regularly have around 200 - 300 users online. I'm on a dedicated server with Dual core and 3gb of memory. Any less and it would run out of memory. That said it nows runs a lot better and uses less memory after being optimized by Gary (helped quite a few of us out).
