    ACG123,

    What are your server specs (processor/memory etc) ?
    I read somewhere someone mentioned 1000 blogs being hosted by their MU installation and am curious as to how well it scales.
    How many blogs do you have hosted (roughly) ?

    we have about 5500 blogs as of this post. Memory is our biggest issue... after all MySQL is our memory hog since Wp is based on it.

    Processor I'm not sure of.. I believe dual p4's.. Memory is being upgraded to 4 gigs because of occassional issues...

    so basically you can assume 1 gig of ram per 4000 users for good performance is my guess.

    Thanks for the info.
    Have you considered moving MySQL over to its own server ?

    Just to add to the "It looks like Blogger!" thread... the great thing - the amazing thing - about Blogger is that every bit of text (other than the logo) is done using CSS. I realize it's a little late for you to pull off a CSS Reboot (http://www.cssreboot.com) for Spring 2006, but you could always shoot for Fall to ween yourself off GIFs and TABLEs for layout. The benefits, mostly in terms of bandwidth and SEO, are obvious and you'll find making changes to be MUCH easier.

    That said - great domain name and good luck with the service!

    Wonderful!
    I want to know how to let the users can edit their custom themes?
    Is that a Plugins?
    Do you mind sharing how you did that?

    Hi, just wanted to notify you that your site is unsafe.
    More precisely, your custom theme allows people to execute their own javascript.
    See http://quenting.iblogs.com/ for an exemple.

    I used a very well known exploit described here:
    http://namb.la/popular/tech.html

    which was used a few months ago to hack myspace and livejournal.

    Allowing javascript to your users is extremely dangerous, and this custom style stuff leaves it open for a malicious user.

    ACG123,
    Nice site. I particularly have a question on your login function. Default WPMU site directs you to a separate page to do login. Your site has it as part of your page (maybe on the header page). If I type in invalid login name, your site display BLOG NOT FOUND page. Very cool. Can you advise how you did it? Also I have a note for AndWat at http://edublogs.org. If I try the same thing (type in invalid login name and pwd), it shows me the native error page. Maybe AndWat likes to improve his site.

    ACG123, I'd appreciate it if you can enlighten me on this.

    Regards,

    Michael
