I’m working on a hobby project and right now I want to use the smallest available database size because I don’t know if the project will go anywhere.
My question is about whether down the line, if the project does end up getting a lot of users, will I be able to scale up the database and just call it a day or will I need to do additional work to scale up?
I’m confused about what happens to the data in the existing database when you “scale up”.
