    CSV or MySql

    Hi,

    I am currently speaking to somebody about setting up a content site. They have asked me how I want the sites data;

    CSV or MySql..

    Anyone have any idea which would be easier to setup...

    I'm okay with PHP if that would affect the decision..

    i think what they're asking is if you would rather have a CSV file containing the data that you would upload, or a file containing INSERT statements that you would run
