So what do you think the problem is then?
It's either of 2 things:

- VB
- The database used

Or maybe the computer that's running it is simply not powerful enough (whether that's the amount of memory, speed of CPU, speed of HDs .. I have no clue).

I wonder how much is to do with mySQL, vis a vis how scalable is it? Maybe its just running inefficiently, after all the database must be getting monstrously big. Suspect a DBA would be able to tweak some things to make it more efficient, do rackspace handle this or does it need personal attention?
I think you have to do that manually... they just deal with the technical aspects.

But mysql can handle a lot... and for $160 the VBulliten software should work

Yeah thats a lot

And to think rubbish databases in Access crash after 60,000 records :rolleyes:

Just out of interest, is there a limit on database size?

No, you'd be able to get one of their techs to have a look if you want. You'd have to pay them extra per hour though.

Yep Access can handle apparantly (for web use) 1000 connections at a given time! I know on some hosting companies there is database limits. However if it has running out space wouldn't the entrie thing just crash?

That's what I thought and it vBulliten would have been designed to handle that. I just wondered for personal interest

It's clearly a server spec problem... Is the server being shared with d's other sites?

to some extent, but I hardly think delingpole.co.uk is using up many resources :P

EDIT: actually, all the agora sites are hosted on the same computer: agora-networks.com, car-agora.com, fashion-agora.com etc.. But they aren't really popular.

I think you guys are thinking about the optimal figures rather than what happens in the real world. I've heard forums powered by mysql can handle around 1000 concurrent connections, and using access you won't get more than 100.

Check out this for some interesting theory.

I expect he makes a tidy sum from Coursework Help, University Essays and Personal Statements.

Take Coursework.info - there are over 49,000 members. To become a member you either pay a tenner a month, or submit three pieces of your own work. I imagine a fair fraction of those 49,000 have paid d a tenner (and perhaps continue to pay each month). And I thought Cambridge didnt' allow its students to be employed

Shouldn't that mean that, if its hosted on the same server as UKL that there's enough money to cover both? 10 * 25,000 (only half the members pay for only 1 month) is £250,000.... a huge amount of money

Quite, although one has to consider costs. Nevertheless, I expect d is very wealthy for student standards. The sites aren't hosted on the same machine. There isn't a huge incentive to spend his profits from his money-making site on something like UKL, which probably loses money (although is good publicity for his other sites).
