Is there a maximum number of content items and categories?

Post by kittymcooper » Thu Aug 05, 2010 3:39 am

I have a client with a site that expects to be about 25,000 "pages" when done. The CMS he is currently using has hit the wall at 4500 pages (runs out of memory) - is there anything in joomla that would limit the size of the site? Are there other large joomla sites out there? examples?

Thanks all.
Kitty

While there ARE definite limits, 25,000 articles should not be a problem...

unless of course each article is huge.

So are the limits described anywhere? I could not find it when I looked. Maybe 15,000 of those pages would be categories ...

Categories is a table of its own...

NOT the same as articles
