If no one in this forum can answer this, can someone point me in the direction of list or other resource that may be able to provide some input?
Thanks in advance. -----Original Message----- From: Fifield, Mike [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]] Sent: Tuesday, April 16, 2002 9:22 AM To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: [PHP] Performance question Ok I have a performance question. I run a wallpaper site; this is the url to the main gallery page http://www.cognitivedistortion.com/php/gal.php <http://www.cognitivedistortion.com/php/gal.php> The page does a dir read and lists all pictures found in each directory, it does this every time the page is loaded. Now at first this seemed like a incredible inefficient way to do generate pages. The alternatives to this would be to generate a list of the pictures and save them in a text file, or create a list of the pictures and store them in a database. If I use a text file I will have to read the text file every time the page is generated which seems like it would take just as long as reading the file allocation table, which I am doing now. As for the database to get the same thing done I would first have to log into the database and then pull the information. I was hoping to get some input as to which would be the fastest/ best way to use. -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
