Subject:Database and table filename constaints
View as plain text  
The length of database names and table names is limited by the MySQL
server to 64 characters.  Anybody got an example of a system on which
MySQL runs where OS limitations constrain names to a shorter length?
For example, HP-UX not using longname file systems, or systems that
enforce a SYSV-ish 14-character limit?
