    I have done some searching but didn't find this...

    I am on a server with minimal space... what is the very minimum of space WordPress can use? I am just a tad afraid of overshooting my storage space max and being charged a lot for that...

    Thanks...

    The upload takes around 1.65meg, the database around 100KB.

    If it helps, my database contains 1898 posts, 5876 comments and is around 9meg in size. It zips down to around 1.8meg.

    thanks Podz...

    I have two sites that I work on... my school district and a local non-profit organization. I want to try out WordPress badly to see if it will fit the bill for what I want to do in the future with sites etc.

    The school It person keeps dragging their toes and I can't get anyone there to help me (even though I think a blog-style site would be cutting edge and a LOT simpler for us).

    so I approach the non-profit and they aggreed to let me try it... but they only have about 20+ meg of space without incuring additional charges... so I wanted to make sure I didn't end up pushing them into additional costs...

    Now I just need to get them to setup a database for me on our area or explain to me how to do that myself thru FTP access...

    Thank you...
