Upper limit on Linux/Apache directory items

Msg#: 4567601 posted 3:24 pm on Apr 24, 2013 (gmt 0)

Is there an upper limit on the number of files and/or subdirectories on a Linux-Apache web server? What would be considered the maximum in good practice.

Thanks for any insights.

that quantity depends on the file system rather than the operating system or server.

It will be lamp virtual hosting with Liquidweb. I assume the file system they use is Ext2 or Ext3 (the other file systems I found seemed very special purpose and not designed for general computing). Whatever they use, it must be an industry "best practice." The fact that it will be a virtual server might also bear on this question.
