In a multisite blog I would like to ask if it is possible that wordpress would hit the limit of the files per partition or files per directory of a linux server (let's say ext3 with 3gb memory on a partition)
After some Googling I found out that there's no limit for mysql tables but there are limit for filesystem files per directory. And for MyIsam it creates file(or files I'm not sure about this either) per table.
ext3 limit is # of bytes/2^13 which means 366,210 file limit for the whole partition (If I understood it right) and limiting to 45776 users (divided by 8).
I saw the posts on this forum but the active users seems to be very confident about multisite and maybe I'm misunderstanding some point.
Do you think it would be a problem? I mean realism aside, would this be a possible(rare) case?
