Database size

How much data,can I put in one database?

We have no hard limit on database sizes. Although I do recommend to keep the size “reasonable” for a (free hosting) website. We may take action if the database is so big it starts to cause harm.

Our main metric for database usage is processing power used for queries. Large tables, many queries and queries involving many tables can all contribute to high database server load. But a lot of that load has to do with query and schema optimization, not raw database size in GB, tables or rows.
