What happens when a database has reached its file size limit?


Maximum database size depends on the OS you are using as well as the version of Web crossing, but currently ranges from 2GB to 64GB.

When the db is getting close to the limit, the sysop is emailed a
warning message, and a red warning appears at the top of each sysop
page "No more pages in database file."

The server continues to run, but new content cannot be posted and
will get errors.

Other errors that may appear in webx.log that can be caused by this, but in and of themselves do not equate to a maxed out DB:

Insufficient inital memory for the heap package.
