MySQL table types

04 January 2009

Was messing around writing a website authentication system using PHP, and at some point I ended up looking into performance of various MySQL back-ends (bit of a diversion as my authentication code was using SQLite). Wrote the summery below so that I could happily forget the essential details until I really (if ever) need to know them, and am sticking it on-line as any technical write-up I don't put on-line ends up getting lost..
