using MySQL for a large site?
Posted 04 December 2003 - 05:22 PM
My concern is in my programming techniques and using mysql for a site with this much traffic. Is using basic php and sql to connect to the database and read/write ok? Should I be using a different database? or a different way to connect and/or read/write? is there a limit to open connections for mysql? or general techniques for higher-traffic sites?
I\'ve written a lot of PHP and SQL interacting with mysql, but all somewhat basic/intermediate usage and much lower traffic. Does any of this make a difference?
Thanks for any advice...

on that note, MySQL will easily handed 1500 a DAY transactions, 1500 a month is hardly big,
My Uncle who is a Computer Engineer in England is the only person I know who does tasks greater then MySQL can handle, He uses Orical, since the company he works for handles 10-25 Million transactions a day,
My former university ran completly on MySQL, during registration thats 5000+ students online signing up for 5-10 courses,
which is intencive insert / drop / update queries, rarely did we experience slow downs from the DB, just poor ASP programming HA!.
