well i would probably just have to wipe out our attachments folder then, because its over 6 gigs as is. just with attachments from January. We have been trying to get users to have their pics hosted elsewhere and just post the url.
i just checked and our smf database, and as a gz file, it is 180 Mb. Is there a way to lower its size? Our forum was created back in 2008 i believe, so it may could use a good trimming.
i also have some questions about your ultimate package, and if that supports custom software running from the forums root? like Perl.
