    Drupal - A resource hog?

    Have seen some complains that Drupal can be a resource hog, especially if many modules are installed.

    How about the default installation of Drupal? Anyone here has Drupal running on SHARED HOSTING? Any problems or any advice on how to make Drupal run smoothly with shared hosting?

    Thanks.

    Nope, just seen a few comments on the web that Drupal caused some problems in terms of resources (especially if many modules activated, like forum etc etc)

    I have a new project, and this time I don't plan to build from scratch (getting too old and tired for tat..... maybe will just build a new theme for the frontend) .... so I'm gathering info on Drupal.

    My project will not have forum, no comments, no cron job. Just basically for publishing articles and news. So I hope there won't be any problems.

    The default Drupal installation has the 'enable cache' feature rite?

    How about your community site? It needs lots of modules rite? Forum, user registration, comments etc. Have you tested it 'live' yet?

    Please give me some details since you have experimented with Drupal b4. Anyway, I might download it later and try to install on my PC (localhost) and see how it works.

    yeah the default installation has the page cache, you just need to enable it, yeah my community site will have a few extra plugins, so far I've tested is ok, but the site has not been under heavy load before, so not sure if anything will happen if there's heavy traffic coming in. It's worth trying out

    Then I wish you all the best.

    Installed XAMPP (my old version of phpDev doesn't cut it anymore) and Drupal 5.1 yesterday.... works fine on localhost (Win XP pc). Now will sit and wait for some inspiration and ideas to skin the frontend
