Thanks to some handy panel changes it is now very possible to check our resource limits, except doing so has also caused me some heart burn.
I run a few phpbb sites generally open sourceware, including my own open source project site for the WP/Gallery2 Plugin and found the following…
Resource limits: 30-40 CPU mins equals 1800 to 2400 secs
500 odd users a day visiting a phpbb board will consume around the 550-600 cpu seconds
Smaller boards say around 150 vists a day will consume around 250 cpu seconds…
Wordpress Blogs roughly the same levels for the same amount of visits as phpbb.
Basically run about three boards with 500 users a day and you have exceeded your account.
I just struggling here to find this limits realistic, we are not talking heavy boards, with huge numbers of visitors just plain phpbb boards with attachment mods and a few other very minor modifications generating a few GB of traffic a month…
I do not want to leave Dreamhost but I am struggling to find how I can stay within the resource rules. I am hoping DH will reconsider the resource limits or give us an option to buy a boster pack for more resource usage.
