I believe gd library would be the only required one (or imagemagick), but really I have no idea.
I've installed several boards on several servers, new and old and I've never had any problems because certain extensions were unavailable.

I dont even think thats required as you can use question and answer over captcha, and you dont have to resize attachments or make them thumbnails.

Not sure though, but i think you can run it with just a regular old version of php that vBulletin needs.

I asked this because in my setup (win2003 Server/FastGCI/PHP 5.2.8), the php executable are using more than 20 MB RAM for every instance. So I have 10 instances of it, it will use more than 100 MB RAM. Thatīs too much! This canīt be normal...

So maybe I can disable some extensions to help.
