I have a site where members can upload photos of their items. Lately, the site has been getting larger with thousands of members and tens of thousands of images. All of the images are stored in one large directory folder I am getting concerned about any kind of limits that may be involved.
Does Dreamhost have an “ext3” or “ext4” system? What are the current limits to the number of images that can be stored in a folder or directory? In addition, what is the limit to the number of folders/directories that can be stored within a directory?
Any advice for setting up a directory system for organizing images for millions of potential members in the future (scalability)?
