database size

My database has just passed 10Mb, which isn't too big, but it's beginnig to grow by about 100k a day. With the stats stored in the main DB, is there a way to "archive" the old stuff into another DB to keep the main DB from growing so big so fast? Aaron

You're probably OK, I have a 151MB database (yes, MCool and I'm doing fine. If you are running Geeklog under MySQL 4 you should enable the query cache feature which has cut some of my page loads nearly in half. Oh, and to answer your question, archiving isn't supported yet.---The reason people blame things on previous generations is that there's only one other choice.

Thanks for the reply... The main reason I want to keep db size down is because I am having a copy emailed out every morning at 3:30 AM. I have a cron job dumping it, tarring it and emailing it to me. I'm thinking further down the road -- in your case I really don't want to receive a 150 MB file every single night. Aaron
