Thanks for replying corbin.


Currently my site gets nearly 200-300 users online but works most of the time worthless. I have optimised the code to work very efficiently.


Each of my pages execute nearly 10-20 queries. (I have tried to optimise the page as much I could)


The current database is


2.0 ghz CPU

1.0 ghz RAM

100 mbps Uplink connection


The average load is between 5-10%

I've yet to find a piece of OSS forum Software that can handle that many users online at once.


A heavily cache-based one might work, but then you get post-update delays. I don't know of any that are heavily cache based.
