    hi, do you know the limits which mysql can reach? for example how many table entries are possible/allowed and how many tables fit into one DB? i heard the number 50,000,000 for max number of entries...

    can mysql be "overused" by thousands visitors at the same time? tell me

    i dont have the exact numbers for you ..

    as for being "overused" .. in a way . yes... mySQL can only handle "so many connections" at one time.. some servers take that for granted and overuse their mySQL , causing errors.. just changing the # of max connections allows helps, but puts a strain on the server in the long run.. but you can "overuse" any database software in the same manner... a powerful SEPARATE database server is an optimimum solution
