How Many Users Can Your WordPress Server Handle at a Time?

The Number of users a Wordpress Web server can handle simultaneously is a function of the Server Capacity/Specification/Configuration, more specifically the size of your WordPress user’s visit process and the Server Ram has a role to play in this number.

There is a Crude formula that can give you this

X = Process Memory usage Size

Y = Minimum Memory required for you webserver to function (500MB in case of APache)

Z = Total RAM available

Number of users at a time (MaxRequestWorker) = (Z - Y)/X

So for a 10000 MB (10GB) Server and 1MB process size

(10000 - 500)/1 = 9,500 Users.

This above has lots of assumptions like Apache is the only service running on that server and that the server uses 500MB and process is 1mb

This is essentially a theoretical limit which may be different in reality, however it would give you a rough idea of what to expect.

Theme directory only includes free themes. Commercial wp themes also have to by found through 3rd party sources.

A poor hosting provider or a wrongly chosen hosting plan can impact the performance of your site and the customer experience of your visitors.

If this is happening to your website, it’s a cl... read more

WordPress, Joomla or Drupal?

The number of people interested in developing a website grows by the minute. Whether it is a simple blog outlining a person’s day-to-day activity, or an enterprise-level website with all the bells and whistles, there is no stopping the fascination people have for websites and the Internet. Despite this interest, there are some hurdles, and one hurdle people quickly encounter is cost - as anyone that has taken this route can tell you, the cost of building a website can often be excessive.

While engaging website developers and programmers might have limited impact on the bottom line of large corporations, for the rest of us – individuals and those involved in smaller businesses – such costs can be prohibitive. Recognizing this fact, and to ensure that (as much as possible) the Internet remains a level playing field, developers around the world invest time and energy into providing people with the tools they need to set up websites independently and without crippling cost.
