[resolved] Limit on number of Users? (5 posts)

    I was wondering if there is a maximum limitation on the number of WordPress users? Either an actual maximum number of users or just a practical limitation. I was considering using WordPress' users to allow or disallow viewable content (sort of like subscribing). My subscriber base (WordPress users) would be between 300 and 1000 users. Any concerns?

    Why would you want to limit the number of users? Secondly, 99% of sites that allow users to subscribe won't get remotely close to 1000 anyway.

    I don't want to limit the number of users at all. I just want to know if there is a limit from WP. If there is, I may need to look for another solution. I know I would start with about 300 users immediately but I want to be able to expand so I want to make sure at least 1000 users won't stress out the system. I intend to use subscribers (users) to maintain a semi private blog via permissions for an organization.

    The limits I have seen referred to are related to the hardware / server limits and not the software - sites like CNN.COM use WordPress software and have not problems (some of CNN is WordPress.COM VIP - but same software) so the limits are host related -

    others are better qualified than I you to give specific recommendations for high traffic sites

    Sorry I misunderstood. There's no limit in WP but your host may only be able to handle so many at a time. If the number of users stresses your bandwidth allotted you may have to move to a dedicated user. 1000 users seems low enough though.
