Hi,

how big is the database of this support board? It must 2 GB or more? :)

I'm only interested. ;)

Cheers,
Blackmore

I can't tell you how big phpBB's database is, but they have 3.3 million posts. My own forum has 2.9 million posts, and my database is around 5GB. The posts table alone, even with no indexes, is 2.3GB. So yeah, I'd expect phpBB's database to be well in excess of 2GB.

Heh heh; I was always curious how big the database could grow. I guess I have nothing to worry about. :lol:

not unless your board gets this big and/or your allowed database size is very very small.

luck,

I wonder...what DBMS does .com use then? Standard MySQL? postgresql? I'd think one of the two for their scalability, myself.

Last time I saw a phpBB error here I saw MySQLi, so I'm assuming it hasn't changed.
