Hi, I was speaking at another forums in reference to a site I'm building. The issue came up as to how big of a site can the script handle, but the real issue was on the server. I would just like to know with the basic hosting plan I have, how much of the below can I handle. This would be a social site with members, pics uploads, video up load and other features, here is what the other person wrote:
I asked: How much can the script hold?
well 10,000's of members., there is no real way you can work this out, but the rule of thumb is a sever can handle 50,000 members, of cause this is not a single core 2.6ghz with 1gb ram. that wouldnt do it, so you are talking quad cores and 16-32gb ram + servers can hold upto 128gb of ram today, but they are not cheap. and a cluster would run faster with a lot more members, if you have so many members and a lot are active, then you should be making the money to get top of the range servers
After how many members should I expect to have to upgrade so my site runs smooth without problems?...Thanks.
