Just wondering if anyone could give me the run down that would cause an uninstalled but extracted (that is, I used ssh, and a wget command to copy magento to the server in a tar.gz file, and extracted it so I could install) copy of magento to reside on my server at a large 69 megabytes.
After that, what size hosting do you recommend for a successful magento store?
