  • I've not tested Slash with 4.0 because is really not ready for testing yet. It is very alpha and should not be used ona production site.

    Slashdot does use the Inno tables though. They scale very well.

    So, MySQL Max 3.23.X yes, 4.X, if you don't care about your data.

    You can't grep a dead tree.
    • Does 3.23.X have row-locking?

      "How about you interface with my ass? By biting it!" --Bender
      • If you use Inno tables then yes. Has foreign key and transaction support too.

        It solved a lot of problems the Slashdot had.

          I concur.

          I'm a bit late on this one, since nobody had mentioned anything to me about MySQL 4.x. Either way, I'm against it at this point. Mainly because the bottleneck is not with our MySQL server, it's with bloated httpd procs.

          Slash and scoop together with multiple sites requires a horrendous amount of resources. And I care about the data.

          One future, two choices. Oppose them or let them destroy us.
