Oh yeah, and I kinda doubt phpBB2 can handle the sorta load the hocp boys would be putting on it... Hard to say without knowing what their hardware's like though.

Hey dude, I recognized those stats instantly - holy sh*t, the HardForums would be a huge gain for phpBB if Kyle and Steve converted :)

It's definitely been MySQL crapping out, from what I've read about over the past months. The forums have been up and down so often, I think it's giving Cliff the workout of a lifetime :)

In fact, I recommended that Kyle come over here a couple weeks ago and check things out.

The [H] guys have some extremely high-end hardware powering their forums, but MySQL just can't handle the load. Does anybody know which DBMS would be best for the loads the [H]Forums would be putting on the server? It's two servers, one dedicated for the DB, one dedicated for serving everything up, AFAIR... so they can basically do whatever they have to do. Knowing them, the trouble of a day spent changing over would be nothing if they could just have the forums up for one day without problems, but what DBMS should they use?

lol!
yeah, we tend to post.. a lot. :D
we actually have 2 load-balancing servers for web server, and a dedicated database server.. yes, cliff is going out of his mind, bandwidth isn't the problem, and neither is hardware (although more can NEVER hurt. :))

okay.. i guess i know what the root of the problem is now.. MySQL..
i still like phpbb2 better, imo. its going on my personal little server. :)

LOL, with reading the 1st post, I firstly thought there was an error in "load values", but no, it's the hell of a big loaded board :D

if you can afford it, oracle is the way to go. and since it runs on multiple OS's (linux, unix, windows (i think) ) you shouldn't have to worry about that aspect.

Yeah, but we don't support Oracle yet. So you can feel free to drop 5 figures on a piece of software that just sits there taking up space and looking pretty, but it's not what I'd recommend :)
