    it really depends on the hardware and the size of the forum.. a very large forum with a ton of posts on slow hardware will cause for logner sql queries and will start to spring out sql errors to members like not enough connections avaliable

    I have seen phpBB2 forums to handle 50 visitors with 30 mysql connections limitation. But I am not sure about vbulletin.

    mysql also really relies on the disks.. so if you are doing scsi 10k disks you will be able to handle a lot of members.. ide on the other hand is where you will run into issues with a large forum
