Martin et al., I'm not sure this would be the appropriate place to post this, but I think you all could answer this question becasue you know of the inner workings of Moodle.
My hosting service has web directory size limitations. I am limited to 1GB of storage or 25,000 files which ever comes first.
Now my questions.
- I have been reading about using a DB to store images. Would it be possible to store all user/admin uploaded files (ie. assignments) in the database?
- If it is possible, would it place too much of a demand on the mySQL server?
- If not, aside from purchasing a new domain (or limiting the number of online assignments), is there a way to reduce the number of files that are counted against my file count or space?
I feel that as I grow, this will become a SERIOUS issue. I want to bring my school online with it's own Moodle site using this same host, but fear we would reach capacity quickly.
