I posted this question in the PHP forum, but i think this is the right place.
I know a little PHP/MySQL. I've done image galleries, basic search scripts, news modules on small to medium websites.
Now I need to develope a website with a complex structure tree, with a lot of static pages, but still I have to put news, articles, search, etc.
My question is:
Should I put all contents in MySQL db's, so I could search easily, update, link the site sections with related news,etc?
Or should I separate the static contents in HTML pages and leave the db's just for dynamic content? If I do this, how can I search thru this pages?
