DH for a 3GB vBulletin forum?


#1

I own a vBulletin webpage, with an almost 3gb MySql database and around 7000 hits a day.

How would it work in the regular DH shared hosting?

If the indexes are squeaky clean you should have no major dramas.

Optimising your database at it’s present location before making the dump for transition is a good idea.

Good luck with DreamHost!

Does the shared hosting include any PHP optimization like XCache?

When is the VPS for databases worthy?

Shared hosting isn’t equipped with XCache as standard, but you can set it up yourself in a jiffy. Several people have reported using the main caching systems with great success. I personally like XCache.

VPS for DB doesn’t mean that the DB is stored on your own server. To be perfectly honest I haven’t educated myself on how the service works or why anyone would even need it. Seems to me the first thing that would require dedication is the underlying script due to Apache processing, rather than the DB grabs.

Perhaps an admin could chip in on the benefits of that one :wink:
