Can a forum run on shared hosting?

Does a forum need something stronger? Note, for the blog it would depend on how large it is and other factors. Probably the same is true for forums.

Most forums require only basic functions that a WordPress site would need. So forums can work on shared hosting but as your site gets popular you might need to upgrade to a vps hosting. Some forum softwares like Discorse will need a vps with Ruby on rails and docker.
