Hey folks,
Fudforum is working swell for us, but I just have a question. We've reached 265,000 users and things are starting to drag. Any suggestions as to what I can cut out to speed things up? The consistency checking is especially slow.
thanks!

Upgrading to 2.5.2 should make the forum faster as then 2.5.X release has a number of security benefits over the 2.3.8 release. There are a few other tips to make your forum faster:

1) Disable the search engine.
2) Disable statistics and who's online on the front page
3) Disable tree view
4) Use an opcode cache with your PHP, such as MMcache or APC
5) Upgrade to PHP 4.3.2
6) Have your database server on a different server from your web-serving server.


P.S. Could you give me the URL to your forum, I'd really like to see how such a large forum fairs.
