I use int for primary key and set auto increase.

May I know when it increase and reach the max limit, what will it do?

Stop there or start from 0 again.

Thanks.

To know the limit of int, you can check this out:

..and about what happens if you reach the limit

As it is stated on the web page for the last link you can use bigint instead,
which has a REALLY HIGH LIMIT :-)
