Typical disk space needed for active site?

posts: 29 Canada


I've recently discovered TikiWiki and I think it has great potential for some sites I'm thinking about. I especially like that it uses Mapserver as the map engine. biggrin

I am new to setting up such sites, so I am curious, how much disk space does TikiWiki consume for say:
- something comprehensive like TikiWiki
- something mostly text based (ie forums, wiki pages, and some document like files, no image galleries)

Thanks for your help, and keep up the good work!

Hi Liz,

The tw.o database is currently around 120+Mb plus around 30Mb for the files with CVS data. You can cut out things like languages/styles/avatars and get an installation to about 12Mb.

Hope it helps, feel free to ask more if you need

on http://mods.tikiwiki.org there are details on securing the tiki (also covers stripping out not needed files) under the Guides.
