My very first post here - please be gentle
After a little research I've narrowed my search for forum software down to XenForo or v-bulletin - my gut feeling is XenForo (loads of thumbs up for XF and lots of thumbs down for VB)
1) my forum will be a rather niche subject and i'm expecting ultimately to have <5000 users with <100 concurrent users (well less than 100 conc users, imho) I'm going for a mid range VPS - 3gb of dedicated ram, 6gb burst. Would that be suitable for Xenforo?
2) as the the forum will be the 'sister' site to my Wordpress based site (hosted on the same server) is it possible to integrate XenForo and Wordpress for user management / logins etc? Does integration need to be on the same domain? My wordpress site has a different domain name to the forum site
Apologies if this is a complete noobie question type post
