I'm expecting to have about 50 - 100 concurrent users posting in the range of 1000 new posts per day.
A significant number of those posts are embedded youtube videos.
I'm planning to launch with the following add-ons:
s9 Media BBCode Pack
Live Update (alerts for both browser tabs and alerts)
Beyond Post Ratings (probably 2 - 3 times the post rate, so roughly 3000 ratings per day)
[bd] Widgets Framework with sidebar widgets that display:
- 10 User Status Updates
- 10 Recent Posts
- 10 Newest Threads
Unfortunately I have a user who is a known troll with a script kiddie who periodically gets upset about something and attacks the server, so I want to protect the database and am planning to use:
- 1 Server for the XF software
- 1 Server for the Database on an isolated subnet that is not internet routeable.
Thansk for you input.
