Have you ever operated a chan?

What does it take, in terms of memory, CPU, bandwidth and disk space to run a chan? Let's suppose it's at wirechan's posting rate.

What software is best? Vichan? Lynxchan?


Something like that.
At this posting rate, a raspberry pi would suffice.


I've had a test chan (using modified dietchan) for a few days, so maybe I can't talk about disk space, but memory usage was really small (a few MBs) and the CPU usage was close to zero (it's not like it wasn't used, over those few days we racked up around 200 posts).


vichan is dogshit and highly over used

i would like to, but i am dumb as fuck, can you guys help me? please? i wanna install lynxchan, but i don't know much about operating websites. what if i want to run it on my old computer in garage? on my personal network? will i get doxxed or something? help pls


if someone can help me too plz, im strugling so hard


vichan is overrated but so is anything when it sets the standard especially for clones. Lynxchan looks like ass out of the box and its configuration is not for beginners.


what would you recommend me as a c# newbie retard, who knows basically nothing about php, js or so? thanks


If you have to ask, don't run one. I literally owned one when I was 12, it's piss easy. Figure it out yourself.


Write your own.


Use vichan, honestly. Lynxchan is better on a technical level but:

>ugly as sin by default

>developed by a dick
>not as feature rich


no offense but that's bad advice


These days there are more imageboards than imageboard users.


It's a good thing. Instead of having blogs with comments, people run anonymous imageboards.
