Yes, absolutely slow, Now and I'm on w/ only 8 other peeps. But I wonder if there are many just viewing and not logged in and whether that would slow things down.

 

If that is the case, then maybe it is the anticipation of the the sli boards...

 

 

Overall I like these boards better...more professional w/ better options. Absolutely like search better. :D

The security issues and the better functionality were the primary reasons to upgrade.

 

There seem to be spurts of slow speed. I'm on a college connection and I notice it get slow. Usually when there are more users on.

sounds like time to move off shared hosting

 

make sure in config.php set usepconnect = 0 to disable persistent connections

Yep, never turned it on.

 

As for shared hosting, Travis pays for the hosting and for vBulliten. None of it is payed for by DFI. Essentially, to be able to run a dedicated server we would have to figure out how to fund it. The best I have found with minimal looking is Cologuys in Texas.

 

The other thing with some of the sluggishness, I am going through and revamping every single template in the control panel.

i don't think you need a dedicated sever as yet just a very very lightly shared server

 

your current loads could be due to other sites on this server and not yours i.e. have 2 other sites with vB3 forums on the same server both reindexing search/posts

 

that also would explain why only 8 people on and it can be slow

 

best place to ask about hosting http://www.webhostingtalk.com/

 

although for your budget that would be hard i.e. closest i can see to something decent would be P4 2.4 server at http://www.servermatrix.com/ $109/mon

 

I'll pm you to get some more indepth usage stats off you so i can give you an idea of what kind of hosting you will require

its not the host...the server has been fine for almost a year with VB2.x.x up until now.

 

when we first put it up, it was slow a bit here and there but cleared up quickly with some foolin around and talking to the host about it.

 

now that we have upgraded to vb3.x.x we face the same thing as before, which we were expecting.

 

it will clear up dont sweat it
