    I have got a vBulletin community with 100+ concurrent users . I was running on a low end server with following specs

    Single Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.66GHz
    MemTotal: 1GB RAM
    hard drive type/configuration: 160GB SCSI non raid
    linux distributor or windows version: CentOS 4.6 (Kernel version 2.6.9-42.0.10.EL)
    apache/IIS version: apache 1.3.37
    PHP version: php 4.4.7
    MySQL version: mysql 4.1.22-standard

    It was just a single site with a single DB of around 400 MB without any attachments or images (as it was stored in the file system). I just bought a new server with WHM/Cpanel support and would like to know what are the best software versions to be installed for an optimized vBulletin forum.

    I just updated the server software using WHM and it shows the following
    OS : CentOS 5.x 64 bit
    Apache :2.0.61
    PHP : 5.2.5
    mysql: 4.1.22-standard

    I happened to check another thread which says Apache 2.2 blows 2.0 anyday should i update apache to 2.2.x? Also what version of php and mysql ( version 5 in both case?) will go along?

    WHM doesn't support upgrading to the latest version i guess, so i should be running rpm manually?

    All suggestions r welcome. thanks in advance.

    PHP 4 is not recommended in Apache 2.x environments. MySQL 5.0 is generally recommended nowadays regardless of Apache version. You can upgrade to MySQL 5 by going to WHM -> Server Configuration -> Tweak Settings -> MySQL, selecting the option for 5.0 and following the instructions provided in that setting (it's important otherwise things become broken).

    Regarding whatever it is you wanted to update manually, to what specifically were you referring?
