    And should we then conclude that if a customer plans to install a forum, they have to go elsewhere?

    I'm just looking for some guidance here, as I have two accounts that wish to install phpbb, and now I'm afraid to allow that. Where are the limits, and how are we supposed to know when we are approaching them?

    I think this might benefit a lot of us.

    100+ people on your forums at once places an unacceptable load on a shared server.

    Thanks Kyle!

    So if we put a choke at 80 members online at one time, that should keep the load down to acceptable levels, correct?

    Also, is that cumulative? Meaning 1 forum at 80, or 2 forums at 40 or 4 forums at 20? Or may multiple accounts have a forum with up to 80 people online?

    more like 30 per board per domain...

    And i would use Robots.txt to protect your forums from spidering.

    Does anyone know a way to limit the users online with Invision Power Board? We have flood control where users can't post too closely together, but that isn't really the issue that needs to be solved. Thanks!

    Okay, I'll go ask there. It's not in the admin control panel, that much I know. I'm assuming I'd have to do it externally.

    I found it.

    System Settings ---> CPU Savings ---> Settings ---> Server Load Limit

    what are you going to set it at???

    that doesnt limit it to a certain number of users, it limits the users depending on the server load...

    I submitted a trouble ticket to Andrew asking him what he wants it set at ... there really are NO guidelines for this kind of thing. This is like "You better hope your site doesn't get popular, or else!"

    I'd assume it would be set at 12-15.
