We are at about 100MB right now. However, there’s a LOT of wasted space. I would imagine this should be much lower if we did a concerted cleanup.
The waste comes from failed installations or compoenents, some redundancy of data, and some ignorant choices. What can I say, I’ve learned a ton about building websites thanks to ORIENTED.
The most space consuming resource is this forum. It’s pretty inefficient. I’ve installed “backup feature” which, when its used, creates a monster datafile. This file is so big, our space usage goes up 30%. It’s supposed to be a temporary file that is downloaded and stored offline for safe keeping. It shouldn’t surprise you that we don’t use it much (ever).
Space requirement growth
Christine probably knows this off the top of her head because of her ORIENTED.com efforts. I’m embarrased to admit that I’ve long stopped monitoring our usage patterns. I am not concerned, however. We have a large allocation of webspace now, one that should cover us for at least a year. Over this time, I hope to remove or upgrade some of the less efficient parts of the website.
