But let's not change the subject of the topic - the site performance is much better Smilie
Running user intensive MySQL forums with search queries is very different than users with shell accounts.

512MB is not enough, really :-) Trust me.

I agree Smilie It was my intention to say that 512MB ram should be enough for most of the things you're running usually on one server, but forum like ours, with ~50000 users probably needs more. And when I said shell accounts, I meant that some users, intentionally or not, sometimes are doing nasty things Smilie
One more time thanks to reborg and all other admins and moderators for putting so much efforts and time into this great community.
