I'm just curious. I know WP is scalable to some extent and can certainly handle thousands of posts. But I am wondering if the same can be said for creating numerous pages, some of which would be three levels deep (Parent, child, grandchild).
Hardware, we think, should be sufficient: dedicated server with a quad processor and 4gb of ram, and the database server is a dedicated dual quadcore, 8gb of ram and 4 x SCSI drives in a raid10 array.
We expect not less than 40,000 uniques a day to visit this site when completed.
I've read conflicting posts online regarding this topic, but never actually anything of any authority. I'd love to get a "ballpark" answer to this before developing this project further.
As such, my question to the gurus around here is, would WordPress be a suitable application for this development? And what limitations, if any, should I expect?
