Im still trying to figure the problem with the "high" CPU usage. Hosting uses prolly some cheap Celeron box and hosts 100+ sites on it, reason why a small forum like this hogs the CPU fast. Besides phpBB is not good in performance when it comes to 50+ concurrent ppl.
Even with the restrictions I added, we are over 5% and that will prolly mean we will get kicked out again soon. I'm looking for new options but I wanna try switching forum software to vBulletin to see how well we go. If its the same shit, I'll go back to phpBB cause there's no point on wasting a $160 license if we are gonna have the same problem.
This change will take 1-2 hours at most, meaning forums will be down. If CPU problem is fixed, we stay with vBulletin and start moding it like we did with phpBB. If not, rollback (few posts will be lost) and start thinking on a hosting that doesnt bother us with CPU bullshit which will be hard.
I'll do the switch today, prolly in a couple hours.
