All MediaBlinkk Products consist of:

PHP scripts, compiled MediaBlinkk Software Libraries, open clear text editable text files and open editable PHP files, and image files in the one click easy install exe file you download. You will need 2 megabytes of disk space for the files.

You'll also need some MySQL database space which holds the data from your users, this is usually provided by your hosting and hosting server:

On initial install the MySQL database space used is approximately .2 Megabytes, and that is mainly the database table structure and initial data in the database tables.

Once your users start posting, adding items, members, messages, attachments, images etc, your MySQL database space will grow accordingly.

How much MySQL disk space is used is highly dependent on the viral growth of your site and the current user base you run, and factors such as:
  • your average allowed image and item size
  • how many images you allow stored for each user
  • how many messages and comments you have stored in your database from members
  • how many posts and items you have
  • how many members and users you have
  • how many site categories, areas and forums you have
  • etc...
