Server 2/3 disk quota changed to 500MB

To compensate for the downtime and server problems lately, I have decided to change the disk space quota of Server 2/3 to 500MB. Other servers may follow later, but not immediately.

If you are on Server 2/3 and you still have the 250MB quota, please notify me since that would mean that I forgot to adjust your account.

The points script is also disabled for about a week.

Thanks Steve, that is awesome!
I checked up in my C-Panel and it does not show the 500MB figure in the disk space usage, it only refers to ∞. I.e. . What does the ∞ mean?

Ditto all the other Accounts including e-mail account as per below examples:

Thanks Bondings Smile
Not that I need it but it feels more safe to be far from the limit.
Peterssidan on Mon Mar 08, 2010 8:22 pm
Great, thank you for your good work Bondings!
mtorregiani on Mon Mar 08, 2010 8:58 pm
Thank you for the extra space...

Honestly, every time I look at what other hosts feature, Frihost delivers something outstanding. Thanks! Dancing

That's great!

Time to update the home page finally! Very Happy
Ghost Rider103 on Tue Mar 09, 2010 5:58 pm
Mine shows 500MB as well.

Thanks Bondings, very generous of you. Smile

I have only used 70MB or so but always glad to know I have more space.
Ghost900 on Wed Mar 10, 2010 5:53 am
I have 500MB now. Thank you very much Bondings. It's a sweet gift indeed.
bukaida on Wed Mar 10, 2010 11:25 am
It's currently only for Server 2/3, not yet for the other servers.

@deanhills, you are on VPS 1 and I guess the quota are wrong. The ∞ means unlimited.
Bondings on Wed Mar 10, 2010 11:48 am
@Bondings. Unlimited sounds even greater. Laughing But OK I understand, you will get to VPS1 later. Thx for the info.
deanhills on Wed Mar 10, 2010 1:36 pm
Generocity and modesty is what differentiates frihost from other hosts, i also have a paid hosting with about 300 GB of storage, but still i prefer using frihost. And bondings rocks as well!
ankitdatashn on Thu Mar 11, 2010 11:37 pm
Dangit, I'm on server 4 =p Oh well.

Also with the gallery, blog(w/comments trying to be added) i need this 500 mb, and so thankful it came maybe later changed to 1000mb? Eh, too hopeful, just glad to have what i have now, awesome hosting, your the best bondings!
milleja46 on Fri Mar 19, 2010 3:21 am
@milleja46, the problem with making the disk space quota higher is that it causes a lot of people to try out some software (forums, cms's, blogs) and then forgetting about them instead of removing them.

After a while, when this software isn't updated, bugs can be exploited and the account gets hacked and causes a lot of problems for the server

Another issue is that this causes there to be a lot of small files. One big file doesn't cause much harm, but a lot of small files make indexing and backing up very slow. And the more data and small files, the slower it is to move to a different server in case a server move is needed. So it's not simply a concern about having enough disk space on the server, but also these problems need to be taken into account.

By the way, a lot of paid hosts (the big ones) maybe state huge amounts or unlimited disk space, but they have limits to the number of files allowed. So after installing a few of those things, you already hit the limit.
Bondings on Fri Mar 19, 2010 12:44 pm
Thanks very much, Bondings. Very glad that I am a frihoster, you always do great thing for us.

The new server seems to run so much faster, phpmyadmin is a lot faster now! This is a great improvement.

One thing I noticed is that from the databases I have, the two biggest ones seem to show tables on the phpmyadmin panel on the left -(34) and (54)- and then when I access them it says that the database doesn't contain any tables. So I lost all the data in the server changes there. I also had many mysql rutines for those databases (mysql functions and stored procedures) so I hope if you could check if you still have them around, because on the overview panel on the left it shows as if there is something on them.

Thanks in advance!
Mrs Lycos on Mon Mar 22, 2010 9:16 am
@Mrs Lycos, I have restored the database footy and superliga with the mysql data from the old server. Those were the databases that matched the number of tables you mentioned.

Please check if everything is fine now. Smile
Bondings on Tue Mar 23, 2010 3:20 pm
Woo! I can keep 3 backups on saved in my backup folder now instead of one! Very Happy
taytay on Wed Mar 24, 2010 5:43 am
Yes all the data is there now Thanks!! The only thing- I believe because of how Mysql or phpmyadmin handles the information (sql dump)-I never got it to upload the rutines (functions and stored procs) on a batch upload, I still have to do it one by one by hand, and there were quite a few! I thought the restoring from your side would bring them up, ufortunately it didn't Sad
Anyway, thanks for the support you provide, and again, the new server is great!
Mrs Lycos on Wed Mar 24, 2010 9:58 am
@Mrs Lycos, it could have been due to version changes of MySQL. Maybe during an upgrade they got lost due to some problem. However during the sql dump and restore it gave no errors, so I think it happened on the old server.
Bondings on Thu Mar 25, 2010 5:13 pm
Thanks a lot for this, Bondings! I kinda forgot about updating my blog at all, but it's nice to know I always have more space to come back to when I need it. Smile

Cliffer on Wed Mar 31, 2010 4:13 am
I'm on server 1 and i had noticed that Bondings had fixed the infinite disk space error for server 1 accounts. Wondering if we get the disk space upgrade too? =X
mk12327 on Mon Apr 05, 2010 6:22 pm
@mk12327, it's coming almost certainly, but a few things will need be taken care of first so it might take a few months.
Bondings on Tue Apr 06, 2010 11:34 pm
Good news.

Muito bom!
alugueldelanchaangra on Wed May 19, 2010 11:17 pm
So this means there will be more space correct?
SMiL3 on Sun May 30, 2010 10:41 pm
@SMiL3, currently on Server 2/3 and on Server 4 (currently new accounts are created there) the disk quota is the double as stated on our home page (it is 500MB). VPS1 still has the old quota, but that should change in a few months
Bondings on Mon May 31, 2010 12:54 am
Yes I want to get it.

folincontro on Thu Jul 29, 2010 3:38 pm
I just signed up with this great site.
what is the maximum disk space allowed?
jeffzareno on Wed Sep 01, 2010 5:21 am
Followup, how about maximum file upload?
jeffzareno on Wed Sep 01, 2010 5:22 am
So wait, the file size changed? That is good right? More space for all of us to put more files. Plus, doesn't this site support python? I hope it does, the reason I came here was for that Smile
