Using MySQL with PHP: I believe that a MyISAM table has a maximum row count of 2^32 (4,294,967,296) rows. I believe that an InnoDB table *may* not have this limit. PostgreSQL: There is no limit on the # of rows in a table, see: http://www.postgresql.org/docs/faqs.FAQ.html#4.4 Remember that there are other limits (like diskspace, and the time it takes to perform a query on the data, indexing the data ...) If you are concerning about the row limit, you may need to re-think the problem. DanB -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
