I’'m new to all of this and have been reading most of this site today trying to find some answers. Hopefully someone can clue me in…haha.
I have a dedicated server I use for a community site of almost 3000 users. It’'s growing every day. I also host a couple other sites for friends. I am looking for a IM solution for members of my community site. Much like Jabber for LiveJournal.
My questions are:
Do I need a separate server to run Wildfire/Spark or can I run it on the same dedicated server?
If able to run on the same server, would I follow the instructions in the docs the same way for setting it up?
Is it better (resources use, etc) to use MySQL or the embedded database?
What kind of load is put on the server? My server specs are:
Pentium D 3.0G
Thanks for any help or answers given.
