I have started learning PHP and got a thought about mysql.

I did google and found this stack overflow link
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/625930/what-is-the-maximum-size-of-a-mysql-database-in-version-5-and-up

But there are less answers and more discussions. Can someone give me the right answer which has full description in it.
