    Website Footprint Link to this post

    Hi there

    So far I love what I see - I have tried the demo site and found it to be very intuitive.

    I have downloaded and "un-zipped" it but found it to be approx 25Mb in size.

    Can anyone provide feedback / comment on the smallest possible footprint of Silverstripe.

    Obviously the size will change based on what modules are installed / what images are uploaded / etc but I would like to gain an initial understanding of what disk space is required and therefore what sort of hosting plan I should be looking for.

    You could probably shrink it a fair bit if you knew exactly what features you were going to use, but I wouldn't advise doing it.

    It will:
    - make it harder for people here to help you with issues
    - make it harder to upgrade
    - make it harder for you to use modules and widgets developed by others

    If you've never developed with SilverStripe before, you probably are not in a position to decide which bits you can do without.

    Is space really an issue? SiteHosts plans start at 5 gig of space.
