Cool, I wasn't meaning to question the move. There are certainly good reasons to move to vBulletin besides just security (database performance is a big one from what I understand, as is sheer numbers of features and the quality of the search tool). There are some really big sites that run on phpBB (I've seen some forums with 50+ times the number of users, posts, and threads that this one has) but mostly they run on really powerful and expensive hardware. That particular forum runs on a quad Xeon machine with I think 8 GB of RAM (!).Art_Giacosa said:Mnemia,
VB has gone from 3.0.3 to 3.0.6 in just a few weeks because of security issues. I agree that no software is totally secure.
Security was a reason for our move, it wasn't the only one. VB is a much more mature product at this point in time. I'm sure when phpBB 3 is released, it will catch up.
Damn, it's getting tough out there. It's almost getting to be a universal thing to do a good share of your business online.pineapple said:
