Hi there!

Changing the database storage method changes just that -- the storage. The publishing doesn't change, and Article Manager continues to create static HTML files (or php files, in your case) based on the data from the database. Nothing on the front end will change, so that's working as intended. :)

Could this storage method (database) improve how the server displays the web pages against the method of file flat? Saving your info on database is faster than flat files? What could be the improvement?

Thanks a lot!!!

Hi there,

It won't make a difference when displaying the pages to the general public -- and non-dynamic pages are generally much faster for that, since no database parsing needs to be done. As far as your web server is concerned, you could have created the file by hand. :)

However, using MySQL will certainly speed up the back end if you have a lot of articles. Flatfile is great for up to around 1000 articles, but once you go over that threshold, it's a good idea to use MySQL instead.
