It's preferable to have on another literal machine, I was just under the assumption you were doing this from one box.

I hear that phpbb will run on older machines so I decided I'll run it on an old IBM Thinkpad Intel 400mhz Pentium 2 laptop, it will be good since it has very low power consumption and very low heat output.

Oh man, that's gonna be pretty slow. How much RAM does it have?

It will technically run on it, but forums take a lot of resources. Once you have a handful of members that thing will melt.

That's gonna chug along fairly slowly, I imagine. How many users do you expect?

not much for now I'll use the laptop temporarily until I geta  large user database and then I'll switch over to my Dell desktop with a 3.06ghz Pentium 4 processor with multithreading, and 4gb of ram
