    Have there been yet any server requirements posted yet ?( I searched and did not find any)

    Such as recommended software versions, php, MySQL, etc..

    Will only MySQL be supported ? There remains a bit of uncertainty around MySQL's longevity, are there any contingency plans ?

    PHP 5.2.3 or higher.
    MySQL 5.0 or higher.
    Any web server playing nice with PHP5/MYSQL5.

    Basically get a half decent hosting package and you'll be fine. Avoid the crappy 'unlimited' hosting offers - pretty much ALL hosts will support XF. Just dont be stupid and get Windows hosting...nobody want that junk :p

    Personally I don't trust Oracle at all, though if they do the unthinkable there will be *some* lead time as well as a community version alternative as there usually is in situations like that.

    Also postgresql isn't that much of a leap.

    Exactly.. CA is notorious for sending good software to early graves through acquisition.
    MariaDB is a plausible alternative (a MySQL branch)

    Thanks, for the tip ( I have three dedicated, in local datacentre ;) )

    Just to clarify, it's technically a minimum of PHP 5.2.4 (you can see that in the linked thread). We use bits from Zend Framework and that's their minimum, though I suspect it would work with lower.

    Ok, trying to remember 5.2.4 from now on :D

    [edit: just checked, my ubuntu is 5.2.6, yay]

    Oops, sorry, PHP 5.2.4, edited post...

    Just an FYI...

    Have to agree on MariaDB. It's basically binary compatible and includes lots of patches to increase performance and provide more detailed performance counters.
