One of our sites is throwing an error because we have exceeded the maximum database size. Every time a page is loaded an insert is made in an anyltics table.

Should  we change the DB to autogrow? How would we di this in SQL 2008?

Could not allocate space for object 'dbo.Analytics'.'PK_Anakytics' in database 'NhmMicrosites' because the 'PRIMARY' filegroup is full. Create disk space by deleting unneeded files, dropping objects in the filegroup, adding additional files to the filegroup, or setting autogrowth on for existing files in the filegroup.

In this case the data file is full.

You have to increase the size
or
Setup Autogrow

If your database is an Express Edition you will have a limitation of size ,,4 GB for SQL 2008.

Please increase the size of database and make sure there is space on disk to grow the database.

@sqlservr, No. SQL 2005/2008 Express have a limitation of 4GB. SQL 2008 R2 Express is increased to 10GB.
