    What is the recommended hosting plan to run this? I’m currently using shared hosting and was wondering if I need to upgrade?

    Anybody have any real world experience to share regarding using bbP with shared hosting?

    thanks!

    Shared hosting works fine assuming you have a good host. As you get more forum activity, you would need more server, and shared hosting is not going to be enough. For starting out though, bbPress works fine on a shared host.

    I’ve been using 1&1 (affiliate link) for 4+ years now without any trouble at all running WordPress or bbPress or anything else, for that matter. If you get an account on a shared host, I would recommend getting one with ssh access to a command line. It makes a lot of things much easier. If all you have is FTP access, that’s OK too.
