@julian said in I’m a student and I want to create a NodeBB:
The $5 droplets on DigitalOcean are more than capable of running a NodeBB. It can probably handle 50+ concurrent users with some minor tweaking, though don't take my word for it
Hi @julian , I would like to ask a follow up question here... any suggestion from you would be very helpful...
a few times a year -especially early May- we have far more than usual visit to our website (pls check the pic below), last year we had only 5 minutes long lost connection to the forum (the pages were showing "not found" error but forum wasn't down), but it was acceptable for us since it lasted only 5 minutes, however this year -since our forum is getting larger- we had two days long problem to access the forum, forum was there (never down) but we kept having "not found - you do not have permission to access this page" error when we click a link of a page in the forum, so we had to renew pages one or two times to view a page in the forum. What would be the best way to prevent this next years? Is there a temporary precaution we can take for a month only? Because current settings are enough for our normal traffic.
High traffic for us is that:
25.000+ unique visitor and 200.000+ total page view
We use Digital Ocean:
2 GB Memory / 50 GB Disk / NYC1 - Ubuntu NodeJS 8.10.0 on 18.04
