"versioning" in a CMS

Recommended Posts

I'm building a modest CMS.  In it, i want the ability to "roll" back to previous versions of pages when making updates.  I'm unclear as to how i might structure the DB tables to make this efficient.  My first thought was to jsut do an insert anytime a page is "updated".  However, this creates a new id so i'm not sure how i'll roll back if I don't then have a unique identifier.  Also, since every single update would insert a new record, even with proper indexing i'm probably going to create performance issues right?  Any suggestions?

It's not pretty any way you slice it... you just need to have groups of records, where only one is "active", however you decided to deal with this: date ranges, activity fields, etc.
