Support » Developing with WordPress » Storing large amounts of database data?

  • Hi,

    I’m new to wp development. I have an idea for a plugin. I am wondering what strategies people use for storing large amounts of plugin database data e.g. hundreds of megabytes?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    WordPress will have no problem with that. It’s a hosting resource issue. The budget shared hosting many people use typically has limits on DB size. I suggest determining the minimum and recommended resources that your plugin requires, then make it very clear to prospective users what that is and that it may exceed the resources available in some hosting plans and that a plan upgrade might be needed.

    Beyond that, how the data is stored depends on the nature of the data and its intended use. All I can suggest is the obvious — do so as efficiently as possible.
