SQL Disk usage?





hive
I just wanna know how does it works. I don't understand, What is my SQL disk size? If I got a Phpbb and add data to it, I note that only the sql disk usage decrease and my main disk nope.
What's the trick?
Sorry about my dumb question, but I am a newbie.

main disk is the hard drives where files are stores, images etc. SQL disk space is where all database info is stored.
phpbb runs on mysql. All users, topics and posts are saved into that database rather than as a file so the SQL usage increases not the normal disk space.

Hope that explains it well enough Smile

The sql disk space should be included in your main disk space.

And its not obvious unless you have a community like FRIHost

Does that mean we should add the amount of space we're using with SQL to the space we're using with other stuff to find out how much space we're using? Or are they limited separately?

The 250MB you are given consists of these

Webspace + SQL

So, if your SQL db uses 249mb, you will only have 1mb free space Very Happy

So if I got 250Mb and I have a PHPBB that uses 50MB of my SQL disk, my main disk space status on CPanel should show 200MB. That's it, huh?

Yes, that's it.

it takes up your disk space?
i though it doesn't Arrow

Why shouldn't it? SQL space is still space. Unlimited SQL databases doesn't mean unlimited space.
