Our database has got too big and gone over the 1&1;limit of 100MB. I have cleared all the log files but it is still 3MB over.
I cannot understand this as it was only about 24MB last week after the weekly log clean. I have added about 10 products, surely this wouldn’t have taken it over 75MB?
I have contacted 1&1;who have said they cannot increase the database size unless I move to a dedicated server. Any help would be appreciated.
Unfortunately, 1&1;aren’t the most ‘developer friendly’ of hosts, and they’re certainly not particularly Magento friendly.
100MB as a database limit is pitiful in this day and age, and rather than try to work within their limits, you’d be better to save time and look for a host that is more Magento focused and allows larger databases on their systems.
