I have a site that they are saying their is a character limit on one of the database

The character limit was 11,500. Is that the MySQL limit or their CMS. Can the database even be limited like that?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hello :)

Could you provide more details about the specific character limit in place? For example, is it for an entry to a table, a table name, or some other entry?

Thank you.

It was an entry to a table. I tried looking but it was a .bin file.

Have your every heard of any restrictions like this? I have not so thats why I am wondering?

Thanks,

I don't whats happening with the customer. He manually added it to the database and so it worked.

Would i be correct then to assume that his CMS has the problem and not mine.

Thanks for the help and links so far.

Yes, it's possible the issue is related to the script itself if the entry can be added to the database via phpMyAdmin or through the command line. You may want to check with the support for this script to see if it's a known issue.

Thank you.
