    Can anybody please help me in the following question:

    Suppose you have a forum hosted on some webserver.

    Consider these are your web hosting details:
    1.) Webserver space : 100 MB
    2.) Bandwidth : 1 GB
    3.) Discussion board software : phpbb

    Consider that your forum has become very famous and you are falling short of webspace.

    What would you do to keep your forum up and running?

    1. Buy some more web-space
    2. Shift to a host that gives more space in same price
    3. Delete older threads
    4. Delete non-active users
    5. Look for someone who is willing to give space in return of some revenue :D

    BTW, your forum has only 1 registered user which means you. Is this an attempt to advertise it?

    In phpBB there are some settings. Don't remember them exactly. That will let you automatically delete post that are older than a particular date, etc. Just go thru the admin panel.

    You can transfer the MySQL database. Import it.
