    Have a word with the 'Cutter Project' - we use them for our maintenance contract for Moodle.
    kmount on these forums works for them and has been a true legend.

    Couple of links for you:

    Installing Moodle - MoodleDocs

    Hardware

    * Disk space: 160MB free (min). You will require more free space to store your teaching materials.
    * Memory: 256MB (min), 1GB (recommended). The general rule of thumb is that Moodle can support 50 concurrent users for every 1GB of RAM, but this will vary depending on your specific hardware and software combination.
    o This includes hosting limits of PHP or MySQL on a hosting service.
    o The capacity can limit the number of users your Moodle site can handle.

    Also see: User site capacities - MoodleDocs

    Essentially its about concurrent users and also running the background cron process.
