Trying to find a forum software that is fast in the way of server-sided scripts, however, I'm having a hard time doing so. I don't want to pay for the software, but I don't want slow software either.

Currently using phpBB 2.21, however, it's slow with how many modifications are on it. Luckly phpBB 3 seems a bit faster than my current version of phpBB 2.21.

So yeah, what is the fastest GNU forum with a good variety of features?

If you have a ton of mods installed on your phpBB forum than thats your problem. Or it could your server is low spec.

However using phpBB isnt such a good idea either. We use SMF here which is free and is light weight compared to phpBB.

Server specs:

cPanel 10.8.2-S120
Apache 1.3.37
Spam Assasin 3.1
phpMyAdmin 2.8.0.2
PHP 5.1.6
PERL 5.8.7
MySQL 5.0.24-standard

Processor Name: 	AMD Opteron 170 [2GHz] (Dual core)
Operating System: 	CentOS 4.4 i686
Memory Information: 	ECC Registered 1024 MB RAM

The server load is usually around 0.1 through 0.8, I know I have a ton of mods on the forum, I'll probably be ditching quite a few on a switch to phpBB3.

And thanks, I'll look into SMF, I'll just need to find out how to add on to them and such, though.

If your just looking for a stand alone forum, I would highly recommend SMF.  Although I run integrated phpbb forums in my CMS, I probably would not run phpbb as stand alone do to the security issues.
