Hosting Space Question

Post by kpixel2009 » Sun May 27, 2018 5:39 pm

Hello Everyone! :)

I am new to phpBB and this forum and I would like to ask a question about hosting space. I have a Wordpress website for my business and I would like to have a forum for clients and prospects. I don't plan on having a really large forum and I am guessing that the most people on the forum would be 200. Does anyone have any ideas on the storage space and bandwidth that would be required for my new forum?

Regards,

kpixel2009

Impossible to answer. How long is a string? Depends on activity, attachments, length of posts, etc. Take a guess, start with that, and go up or down as future experience dictates.

As we don't know what space you have now it is difficult to say but if you are running WP then I would guess that certainly in the initial stages you would have enough to run phpBB as well. You may find that you wil need to increase your webspace in time.

Thank you for your input. I guess I could start small in the beginning and then upgrade later. :)

Steve, I'm sorry but it never occurred to me to take these things into account. What I will do is start small and then upgrade to more hosting space and bandwidth. Thanks for the quick reply. :)
