bbpress 1.0 or 0.9?

  • I want to install bbpress but I am considering server load, so can anyone tell me if 1.0.2 in terms of server load is “heavier” than 0.9?

    Thank you.

  • Heavier, yes. Will the average user notice, no.



    It is, by about 50%.

    That said, no version of BBpress is particularly heavy on the processor :)

    Yes, 1.0 has a dramatically higher load.

    I’m running 9 0.9.x bbPress installs along with a WordPress install on a single machine that’s doing around 10mm pageviews a month. If I was using the 1.0 branch, I don’t think I could come close to that.



    I’ve tried both 0.9.06 and 1.02 and didn’t notice much of a difference. I stuck with simply because there are more plugins available.

    Hey citizenkeith… do you have bbPress benchmark installed?

    I’d be interested in the number of queries/output time for your installs… I’ve seen a 10x speed difference in test installs and am wondering how common that is!



    John: Here are two active forums, one running and one running 1.02. That latter is integrated with WP. Each install is on a different shared web host.

    Running on Hurricane Electric “Starter Virtual Host”

    0.075 – 12 queries

    0.518 – 16 queries

    0.406 – 16 queries

    0.334 – 15 queries

    Running 1.02 on Media Temple Grid Service

    0.580 – 21 queries

    0.447 – 18 queries

    0.376 – 16 queries

    0.728 – 19 queries
