Page naming confusion - Database

There's a longstanding page named Database, about the OSM database. This new page "Databases" has a very similar name, which could cause confusion.

Would be better if "Databases" redirected to "Database" really.

In fact, let's rename this page 'Databases and Data Access APIs', because most of the items listed are APIs not databases. -- Harry Wood 13:12, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Can do - I'm not worried about what it is called. I'd actually like to re-name 'datbabase' because it only refers to the main API database...Just a matter of finding out how to re-name wiki pages! User:Grahamjones 11:59, 2 July 2009

OK done. For help on moving wiki pages see here: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Moving_a_page (largely written by me actually)
But I tend to think "Database" is a nice short wiki page title for a page we often need to link to. That page is a core part of our components documentation -- Harry Wood 19:01, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

quote section 'apidb': "The database will take approximately 1 TB as of April 2012." can someone please provide a current figure for the database size? --Rfuegen (talk) 17:19, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
