upload folder - ? about inner workings of piwigo

Greetings,

So many years ago I made the regretful decision to use godaddy as my hosting provider.  Recently they have been on a tirade of dismantling sites of private users who use little or no bandwidth but what godaddy considers to be an excessive about of storage, over 5gb.  Now my piwigo instance has come under attack, I currently have about 11k photos. 

Now to my questions
What is the impact on piwigo if I resize photos in the upload directory?
What impact on the functionality of piwigo if the upload folder is removed?
How does piwigo store the photos?

In doing a check I have just over 500 photos which are more than 5MB, my hope that is if I can either resize those photos or remove the upload directory I will be at the maximum till my agreement with them is up in November and I can move to another hosting provider.

Piwigo version: 2.7.0
PHP version: 4.4.9, zend engine v1.3.0

Thanks in advance for help in getting this resolved.

Re: upload folder - ? about inner workings of piwigo

hello

1. none (seamlessly regenerating multi-sizes)
2. no more photo will be visible
3. see point 2 :-)

my advice: change your host now, you don't need to wait the end of the contract to migrate your domain name

PHP 4.4.9 ??? really ?
the strict minimum for Piwigo is 5.2

Thanks for the response, I was afraid that was the case.

Yes in checking the server here is the output when obtaining the php version

-bash-3.2$ php -v

Re: upload folder - ? about inner workings of piwigo

the PHP engine accessible via bash is not necessarly the same used by the web server
only the info on the admin homepage of Piwigo is relyable

in insist because there is NO WAY Piwigo 2.7 runs on PHP 4.4
