  • MySQL db size when imported

    Hmmm.. it seems as though I have recently discovered a limitation in my account with my Webhost. Though presently this is unconfirmed as it is holidays and I cannot get in touch with them, I read somewhere that I have a limit of 100MB on MySQL databases...

    My present dB size is 94MB and so before I bring it across I need to prune and tidy it up.

    However, I also read that the vB import script reads from the existing dB when doing the import, and this leads me to think that I am not going to be able to run the import as if you add the current size to the size of the vB dB that will be created also, it will most certainly exceed my 100MB limit.

    Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can work around this...?

    There is no workaround unfortunately. You will need to increase the db space available to you to be able to do the import.
