I am developing a website which will have almost a million pages. The pages will be generated through mysql database and cached into static HTML files to minimize mysql server overload.
Now the question is: 1. Is it better to generate all the files in the root say http://www.example.com/page1.html and so on OR is it better to create a directory structure and generate the html files in different directories?
2. Which is a better option in terms of minimizing server load or seek time?
