My MySQL databases are limited to 1024MB per 1 database but WPMU websites need to exceed that... Is there any way to make WPMU go and use database_2 when database_1 is already close to 1024MB?

I can have:

  • database_1 1024MB
  • database_2 1024MB
  • database_3 1024MB
  • database_4 1024MB
  • etc.

I can't have:

  • database_1 8192MB or more

There is no code I know of to automatically partition databases like that based on their size, but if you want to use something to manually split your system across multiple databases, then HyperDB is one way to do that.
