I know it's not the place to ask but most of you own forums of your own and many have their own servers. I was just wondering the minimum reqs for a server. I'd be hosting approximately 5 forums that are around 500-3,000 members and 10k-100k posts each. I really want to self sufficient when it comes to certain things, if possible. What things need to be done on a daily basis? What type of internet upload/download speeds do I need? I have a quad core pc at home that only needs a hard drive to be put back in use... was thinking of using that. I figure that ram and disk space will be easy for me. I've used WAMP, XAMP, and LAMP before... is it something similar I just have to open ports/permissions for others to access the files?
