I have a friend of a friend who contacted me today becasue they are unable to access their forum on a hobbie site they have.

It turns out that their database has grown to 150Mb in size and the limit for the webhost is 100Mb

Upon investigation is seems that the attachment table (i think?) is 132 Mb in size (this is viewed through the hosts myphpadmin online console)

Is this as easy as just deleting enough of those attachments right off the hosts myphpadmin interface? (i will back up the database first of course)
