How would phpBB2 handle a load like forums.linkinpark.com ? They're on vB right now and mySQL times out a lot...

phpBB2 has never been tested under that load but I would guess it would fare just as well as vB. The problem isn't the scripting, its MySQL. I've seen vB boards with ALOT more concurrent users then that one :)

(Off topic: Cool..Linkin Park is one of my current favorite bands :) )

Heh...

What do you mean "that load"? How about Flashkit? Over 230 000 members and about 900 000 posts. I guess it's up to the sql, not the board, but how many people say "They have really speedy sql on stable servers" instead of "Wow, this board rocks!!!".

Anyway, I believe phpBB can handle such load too:)!

How much load can the mySQL take?
Just wondering :)

if you have a BIG board then you could probably afford to have a different back-end than mySQL. since phpBB2 has the database abstraction layer it should do even better on DB2, Oracle, etc. :)
