Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
So far, depending on the site, the flat file has gone up to close to 1 MB. I'm just thinking that opening a file and checking so many lines from top to bottom is not so smart.
I'm kind of set to switch to MySQL, but I'm still curious about your experience with flat files vs. MySQL (in PHP environment).
I know that the server performance is No.1, but still there must be more to it that drives web developers in making their decisions between flat file and database.
With the move to MySQL, I hope to get faster read/write, and to be able to count number of searches for keywords that are already in the database.
