Just to give a little bit of background, I am a real huge fan of the phpbb boards, and am currently running around 9 boards with very little to no problems at all. I recently was asked to help out on a very large board. We are around 31,000 registered members, with about 50,000 hits a day. At times we have around 600 to 800 members on at one time. The guys there are running a Vbullitin board, and in recent weeks we have had errors all over the place, and from what I understand, they are working with the makers, and some of them don't have a clue what is going on.
The last few months I have been putting a little bug in their ear about maybe going with a Phpbb board, but I am a little concerned with how this would run with that many people. The site is running on a dedicated server, but I don't have any of the stats on that.
If you would like to see what we do on this site, the url is www.extremeskins.com
We would also need to run a portal system to accomplish what we do on there.
Does anyone know if there is a phpbb site that is maybe this size or larger that I can use as an example to show. Also is there any kind of a site that posts stats like big-boards.com?
Thanks in advance for any help
