[resolved] WordPress Database size problems (5 posts)

    I am using a sharing host fro my blog. I have installed wpdb_backup plugin which sends me a zipped backup of my database daily via email. There are about 100 plus posts in the blog and the zipped file size is around 500 kb. If I unzip it it comes to around 2.5 MB. I cannot see my database size from the hosting control panel, but my host tells me I have used 12 MB out of 50 MB. Isn't this kind of strange? I mean the unzipped file is just 2.5 MB whereas, the database size is 12 MB. Can anyone please help or give some suggestions in this regards?
    Many thanks in advance.

    The unzipped file is a dump of the data from inside the database - not the database itself.

    Thanks esmi. So this means there is no issue?

  4. Well the size of your DB export isn't an issue :) As for using 12 out of 50 megs, that's also not unusual.

    So I think there's no issue here :)
