Support » Installing WordPress » how much mysql do I need?

  • Resolved becs


    HI everyone,

    I just bought a domain name to transfer my blog to and I need to purchase mysql add on.
    They offer 150mb and 300mb mysql database.

    Would 150mb be sufficient?

    Also I have no experience with mysql or anything like that. Am I going to struggle to host my blog? I know mysql is needed but can I simply install it and forget about it?

  • Unless you’re amazingly prolific, 150MB will hold you for a very long time. My “main” blog has about a year of fairly frequent posts (avg’ing not quite 2 a day) and a decent amount of comments. It’s not even 3MB yet.

    Excellent, thankyou very much for your help.

    Damn I closed this as resolved but forgot to ask something.

    If I do host my blog elsewhere, do I still have access to the normal wordpress dashboard and the features like tag surfer and comments list?
