I am still working on getting Sitefinity installed. Today it was brought to my attention that SQL Server 2008 Express only allows up to 4GB databases. I need some help with deciding if this is going to be a sufficient amount of space.
What will Sitefinity actually store in the database? If it stores all pictures/graphics, movie clips, code, articles etc, I could imagine that it wouldn't be very hard to exceed 4GB of space. If Sitefinity mainly stores only text, I would think that it would take quite a lot of effort to fill up 4GB.
Could you please offer some guidance in planning how much database space I might need? Any insight or best practices info you could provide?
