I am just curious about the limitations of different INT data types in phpMyAdmin.
I use phpMyAdmin to store databases and tables.
And obviously, when working within a table I will usually create an 'id' column and set it to an INT data type and 'auto increment'.
The thing is, in the book I have been learning php from, the author set the 'id' field as a 'SMALL INT'.
I have recently built a reviews application for a client of mine.... so his customers can leave testimonials on his website.
And when someone leaves a review, it inserts a row inside a table on the database.
And I have set an 'id' field and made it a 'SMALL INT' auto increment (inside this table I am refering to).
What I want to know is,,, once this 'SMALL INT' data type reaches it's limit, what will happen???
Will my clients application just simply stop working once a certain number of rows have been inserted?
