    There is already a forum running the xenForo alpha version - the forum has 278000 posts, but probably only a test site - Kier is an admin.

    See yourself:

    Looking good, although shame about the lack of online members, maybe time of day?

    interesting, so this means that the alpha is really stable ...

    They've been running it quietly on that site for a month. I would say it's pretty stable. There is so much to work on, though. Sensibly, they are focussing on getting the core functionality correct. Not just correct but innovative.

    Mike's CPA site has been running vBulletin since vB1. We upgraded it to XenForo a little over a month ago and it's been running very nicely ever since.

    And we now see that the xenForo Alpha version is stable - not only here but also on a site with 200000+ posts

    Watching an early version of a product get installed somewhere and not have any serious problems with it is wonderful to see. It's a good feeling to have again. :cool:
  8. What are the hardware specs on that box with that amount of posts? Hows the load?

    It's a very positive feeling, we know that if they're confident enough to make it go live on a site such as, then we've definitely got something going on here.

    Michael; that 300k post forum will run easily on a cheap VPS.

    That board is running on the same server as this one. As is http://forums.spacebattles.com, one of my own communities, which is rather large.

    This server is a quad core Xeon with 4GB RAM a single SCSI disk. Nothing massive by any means.

    Man, that site was a heavily hacked up UBB freeware version before vB. :)

    Same box as this site, and it's also running another very busy (non-XF) site. Load is generally below 1, usually around 90% idle.

    We're about to hit 5,000 after a couple days, so it won't take long to hit that. Nice to know it can run safely on higher numbers though.

    Congrats, we recently hit 250,000 threads on wetalk. I can't wait to test XenForo running live on it.
