We are going to launch a community site with 100K posts, 100K
comments, 10K terms, 5 users ( all admin/editorial), and approx 500K
recs in the wp_postmeta.
Site may grow with a larger author base and we hope it will grow to
become a much bigger site...
At this time, I would like to know how would WordPress behave when the
above numbers reach the 10 times the current fold, that is
and approx 5M recs in the wp_postmeta.
First off, are there any tools out there to put this many records (
dummy recs fine ) into a WordPress install in a fast-efficient manner?
My migration routine takes about 10 hours to complete to put 100K
posts into WP. I must find more efficient ways to 1M records!
I know WP can handle fairly large database content and WordPress.com
is the greatest example for that.
However, those guys have of a ton of servers to blaance to load and
much more expensive servers which skew the whole equation.
In my case, I have what I have. A since $10K IIS server running at a
I'm curious to see/experience how the admin dashboard would load and
how the front page ( with multiple loops ) behave when I have that
many posts in there..
Any ideas/tools towards this goal is greatly appreciated...
Of course, once I have that many recs, I will be needing a stress
testing tool but I think I can find utilities for that.That's more of
a IIS question.
and BTW, we must be on an IIS (windows) server and we cannot switch to
a LINUX server for lots of legacy code (ASP) reasons anytime soon.
Thank you for your help.
