Storing settings

I need to store settings for certain things in a web application, such as date the automatic import for a table last happened, a couple of last modified file dates, etc.

Question is, should I make a new table in the database which will likely only ever have one row of records in it, or should I be storing and updating these values in a config file somewhere?

Sorry, I should have searched prior to making a thread. I have my answer, can someone delete the thread please?
