    Hello Everybody, I just wanted to know, if a Package of 500 MB diskspace will be enough to hold a vbulletin forum??

    if yes, so to what limit of members or posts will it be enough??

    if not, what do you recommended?

    Thanks in Advance

    Thanks for your reply Nick :cool:

    But I want to tell you that I will have about 4 or 5 categories with 3 forums in each, and member number ain't going to be more than 150/200, so you think (from your personal point of view) that 500 MB will be enough??

    That is the question I need an answer for, Thanks in Advance

    Yeah, I think it's fine, at least to start out with. The only concern would be with attachments. If your community is intended to be attachment-heavy, you could possibly quickly outgrow this limit. If not, then like I said, it's not bad for starting.

    It should be fine to start out, but as your forum grows, and members upload more images, then your going to run out of room quick.

    it is alright for the the beginning.......bt once you start getting traffic .then the posts count will also increase .......so u may have to upgrade it in future
