Hi everyone
I think that when the number of messages and topics in wpforo forum increases, the database volume will increase, which will contribute to the slowness of the site, isn't it?

No, it doesn't have such a hard connection. You'll have slowness issue if your hosting service is very poor and you have more than 1M posts. If your hosting service is a powerful service you can have even dozens of millions posts without speed issue.

@martin And definitely the costs of that server are very high

I still have a small forum, but I still switched to mariadb databases, it is faster and it can withstand higher loads.
