Hi

In SMF 2.017, what should the Forum Cache folder size be?

Thank you

I've never been asked that before... What is the real question here, are you trying to find out how much space it'll need, or whether the space being used is too small/large?

I had an error in the past and had to turn off the caching as the folder got very large quickly.

Last time I had an issue my site stopped working. I think the cache was about 2MB???

I reinstalled fresh forum files and it is sitting at 284KB.

MB? Anything under 20MB is within normal depending on the mods you have.

When you said large, I thought you meant gigabytes. That would be concerning.

Thank you Aranator

As I have just refreshed my forum, I will keep an eye on the cache size and post back if there is an issue.

Thank you for your time.

They're historically worse than some of the free hosts out there.

It was a while ago. It caused the forum to stop working. I had to empty the cache folder and ended up turning caching off.
