We currently run a site that has over 120,000 channel entries across our main EE install + MSM sites. As we continue to grow and add more channels and entries, I'm wondering if there's a limit to the number of entries EE can store.

I'm interested to hear about overall limits (perhaps imposed by the database) along with any channel specific limits, if they exist.

I can't say for certain how it would pan out in the real world but the entry_id column in the database is an unsigned 10 digit INT so technically there is a limit there. But it's pretty big. You should be OK until your 10 billionth entry.

  • Yep, it's mostly about how efficient your server hardware is at handling query load.
