Last Modified: 2013-12-13
php, windows server 2008, iis7, fastcgi

use a textfile as a database  
is this what caching is

would this be a php odbc connection

my sql server 2005 database is getting very large (which is slowing load time for my important data), so I would like to use a textfile for my data that is not important

why is it not recommended to use a textfile as a database does it use alot of cpu or ram
