I don’t want this thread to be dead.. Can someone share some other experiences?
In addition to my previous page:
I found an article where Barry is claiming to have 300 Servers for wordpress.com with 10 million page view (in year 2007). In same post one user has madea comment:
“300 hosts to serve only 10 million pageviews? This is a little bloated, isnâ€™t?
I know a case that only 2 hosts serves more than 350 millions of pageviews!!”
How many servers wordpress.com is running on?
My experience with wordpress is NOT good at all. I made a website with wordpress, only 3 or 4 plugins installed (all plugins checked and optimized), 600 categories made, and so far 700 posts are there.
A single post page showing more than 35 SQL queries and on an average it takes from 3 seconds to 6 seconds to generate a Single post page. I optimized database, setup PHP eAccelerator and it is hosted on VPS.
With this much server resource, if 600 categories and 700 posts are taking making it that slow, then I can not imagine to have millions of posts on wordpress. I can not afford to have 1000 servers for one million post.
If you google a bit, you will see how many people complain about wordpress for being SLOW. Looks like there is no limit for SQL queries in wordpress and if just to receive a category hierarchy one needs to run 35 queries, then there is some serious issue with the optimization.
I am not a GURU or Genius, I respect wordpress developers from the bottom of my heart BUT I think there should be some thought about making it fast. Every time with the latest release (of wordpress) we see Lots and lots of AJAX and CSS improvements and it is making it much more slower than ever. The write post pages, you just try it on dial up or some other slow connection and you will know what i mean.
For the beginning it feels like Haven to get a site with lots of controls and free updates but as soon as you start growing, you realize that there is something seriously Wrong with your system. All the money you earn from advertising will go to the hosting companies.
This is just my experience and I am not arguing with anyone.

One more thing I forgot to mention.. As I said that BP makes one directory for each user to upload their images.. if that is true then..
3 millions users mean 3 millions directories on my server. Does anyone given a single thought about inode in linux? when you get VPS or server, you get limited inode.

I am running a website with more than 3 million users and the profile and other SQL extensive pages result always comes within 0.0002 seconds.
3 million users and their profile info and other things, including pictures, albums, friends, groups are divided into 10 tables only. Site is online for about 6 years and running on only one dedicated server. You can assume the hits on the site like this. The whole database is optimized by me and all the queries are written by me. I know if this site was made on buddypress on any other open source, we would have needed atleast 500 servers to control the traffic.
plentyoffish.com is world’s top dating website and having only 6 servers and only One database server, while match.com and others have few thousands servers (with lesser hits than plentyoffish.com). The truth is that plentyoffish is being run by one guy and he knows how to make database and tables.
I am not here to criticism anyone, I told what I felt.
I don’t know if i need to make 1 million database in future to control my 3 million users.
And also i noticed that it makes a New folder for each user to upload their images.. means if you have 1,00000 users you will have:
100000 x 3 = 3000000 Tables
and 100000 folders for images..
I am really shocked about this..
My Goodness.. so that means if I have 50,000 users.. BP will make 50,000 tables?
What kind of programming is this man?
Right.. but that Widget is showing the correct url for all the users. like http://sitename.com/network/members/Joorgeta/
But in one users name is showing like this :
Now.. my question is.. If BuddyPress doesn’t support any WordPress MU widgets then why on the home page we see the links “Click to add widgets on this space” ?
I filled correct username.
And composed a Messege, when hit the button Send. It told me:
“Message could not be sent, please try again.”
So when should I try again?
Same error as when I post in Forum.. it says can not post this Topic. Looks like BuddyPress is not in a good mood
