Ok.. Im about to start a work placement soon and part of my job is to develop a site for estate agents and various agencies. This will use data held on a server which is queried via Php. All the data will be held on a server in the office. Now how many simultanious connections could the MySQL and php handle? Is it like 300-400. I know this is relient on the server speed so say its a 1 gig server.
Is their a better way to do this? It needs to be cheap, free being ideal.
"The maximum number of connections MySQL can support depends on the quality of the thread library on a given platform. Linux or Solaris should be able to support 500-1000 simultaneous connections, depending on how much RAM you have and what your clients are doing."
