It's more than capable, depending on your needs.  Do you want to support 
hundreds or thousands of simultaneous users?  MySQL might not be your 
best bet.  Dozens-hundreds, yes.

The MySQL question is unrelated to the 'variables' carryover - that has 
to do with the concept of sessions. should have more 
info, although that mechanism isn't the only way of doing it.  :)

If you're looking to do something commercial, and need support, my 
company would be happy to discuss your requirements in more detail and 
advise/consult/develop as necessary (as I'm sure others on the list 
would too).  If you're looking for a personal site, or learning, or a 
proof of concept, there are many good code examples and tutorials at 
places like and  (and if memory 
servers, right boaz?)  :)

Good luck.  :)
