19652database or files?
- Aug 30, 2007Hej!
I'm running some services for a small usergroup on my slug, OpenSlug
3.10. Nothing fancy: a static webpage, 2 wikis, ftp server. And I
would like to add a picture gallery. The slug was was bought
de-underclocked and I plan to fatten it (RAM is here but I still
have to build the courage to take the soldering iron).
lighttp provides the http services and I installed dokuwiki because
it needs no database and I thought using plain text files would be
faster. But now the addition of a gallery again allows me to select
a program using simple files or a database to store it's settings
and I wonder whether my previous selection was right. Wouldn't it
be faster to keep all this retrival code central (in a SQL database)
instead of kind of duplicating it in several PHP5 programs? And
especially with more RAM swapping wouldn't be a major problem. How
much RAM uses mysql, BTW?
So, switch from Dokuwiki to Mediawiki plus mysql and install, say,
Gallery? Or keep dokuwiki and install something like yappa-ng?
