  • Running out of server space

    I run a small website on a shared hosting plan and have about 20 MB of web space left (Max 600 MB). The database takes up 260 MB. The Post table is 92 MB and the Postindex table is 107 MB.

    Since I don't want to upgrade to a costlier shared plan I guess I would have to delete old threads to free up space.

    If I did this could I provide those threads in a file format that could be downloaded from the website to users PC and be searchable with the usual search criteria?

    There is no option to do that. You might want to consider disabling search. That would allow you to empty the postindex and word tables.
