I’m working on an educational blogging/community/elearning service (a bit like edublogs) for the University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam.
Have a look @ http://teachr.nl/ There’s not much content online yet, still playing with themes, sql caching and apache tuning (eventually we envision about +10K blogs on the server.
My only fix was to run bbpress 1.0-Alpha-6. Please read the most important topic in this forum @ https://buddypress.org/forums/topic.php?id=471 (about installing buddypress and integrating bbpress).
Read the first post, you’ll find that everything you need to know is there
Also http://bavatuesdays.com/integrating-wpmu-buddypress-and-bbpress/ is an excellent tutorial.
Thanks a lot guys! I already found Jim (where would the world be without Google these days ) and he seems to be a great resource indeed. I also read about supercache and i will absolutely give it a go.
I originally posted after getting a ridiculous server lag (118 queries in 38 secs or slower) but it turned out to be a very badly configured hyperactive firewall and now i’m getting the same queries in about a second, which is ok for now.
Anyway, thanks for the directions, i’ll be sharing some of my results soon i hope.
Keep up the good work!
Beyonddesign: To answer your first post, it depends on the traffic you’ll be generating, meaning how often will your members visit?
I’m getting very nice results with Ubuntu 8.04.1 lts, latest stable packages of apache2/php5/mysql5, configured with only 1cpu and 1gig of ram, running on a vmware esx3 host (note: hosting only 80 very active blogs)
I too am currently evaluating BuddyPress, for use in a University (so in 5 years we’ll be looking @ roughly 30.000 blogs). My experience so far is that BP needs a lot of queries to load the page.
Has anyone got any experience on finetuning linux, apache php and mysql for a site like this (memory, caching, network etc)? Needless to say i’ll be running a dedicated machine for this site (and got root access).
I’d love some configuration recommendations, specifically on proxy/caching strategies, backup and clustering.
