    Can I ask what is the largest working installation in production with this plugin? I am wanting to know how well its scales because I have a very very large amount of listings I need to import.

    Are there any examples of large scale sites using this?

    Will it work with any wordpress theme?

    I am working on a redo of an older site of mine for this new domain I am in just the intial phase of starting dev with Osclass but really was initially wanting to use WordPress but could not find anything with the right database structure design to handle lots of listings with traffic. WP scales as a blog. But as a listing engine it normally does not unless you have designed the plugin to do such. Can you please inform me.

    Hi Zorro,

    Scalability questions are always difficult to answer because there are so many variables involved.
    – The server configuration
    – Caching setup
    – Availability of database/RAM/CPU for the server
    – Dedicated vs. shared hosting

    And that’s just the hardware side, AWPCP itself is probably installed on a lot of sites that have a large amount of listings but not everyone tells us about their sites. So I don’t have a specific example of “very, very large” because of that.

    Can you be more specific about “very very large” here? That’s a subjective measure at best, and it would help to have some real numbers to work with.
