We are currently running a largely stock vBulletin 4.x with Sphinx search and relatively few plugins and products. I have a few questions and concerns prior to purchasing about the viability of switching our site over.
Are there server intensive features that are recommended to be disabled for large boards?
- Import of a large board - I see there are multiple options including third party paid offerings and ssh import instead of the browser. How long can I reasonably expect an import to take?
- Paid memberships: We use a paid subscription model with access to premium content and for sale forums. Currently we use authorize.net and paypal, I see native paypal support within the control panel for user upgrades, is there an authorize.net option?
