I like the future-minded Discourse, and while I’ve also been following Flarum, which finally went stable recently, ideally I’d love to give feature-superior Discourse a shot by migrating from vBulletin.
However, my biggest issue is technical requirements. My community is sponsored with a VPS by a hosting company. I know DigitalOcean is recommended and if a regular VPS is employed, Discourse may run with problems.
Because I have the flexibility to customize this VPS to any specifications, what should these specs be that would guarantee good performance, if that’d even make a difference?
