I had no idea the performance of Slash was so low. Apache itself ought to sail, even on an "older" box like that. I just installed YDL on a G3-upgraded PCP 210 with 128 MB to use as a test box for Slash. Now it's sounding like I could max that out just clicking around the site myself.
How much benchmarking and optimization is done on Slash? Is there documentation on tuning and tweaking for low-end systems like the poster and myself have? I bet there is demand for a "mature" discussion board system for low-traffic sites that could otherwise get away with hardware like this. I knew that hoping my box could serve /.-like loads was unreasonable, but I really thought it would be able to handle a MacSlash-level load.
I don't mean this as a slam on any of the Slash developers. I really like it's capabilities. I'm just unfamiliar with the system requirements.
You are, of course, correct. Sorry I mis-spoke.
Sounds like the primary limit (in terms of pressing a dusty retired workstation back into service) to running Slash is RAM. The recommended minimum PII-200 probably has a ≥1 GB HD, but didn't come with 256 MB of RAM. Maybe it would be best to just put another couple sticks in my box.
