    mysql error: The table 'attachment' is full

    Does anyone know how I can fix this problem?

    The error says the table is full. I guess it reached its mysql capable limit and this requires you to prune away older attachments or convert them to be stored on the web server instead (for version 2 there is a source code modification available (unsupported) to do this. In version 3 this is a default feature).

      How would I prune attachments from just one forum, and nto all of them?

        I don't think that is possible. I have no experience with that.
        You could send an email to the support department through the members area > contact form > and maybe someone might be able to look into it for you.

          I'm going to upgrade to VB3. This seems to be the only real answer. Do you have a link to where I can read about the archiving of old threads to html?

          Also will this shrink the size of my database?
