I am building my first ever PHP site. Should I worry about speed?
These are the parameters of my site
- MySQL database with about 500 records (about 50 fields each) and a couple
of small related tables
- about two or three visitors at the same time
- hosted on fast and large server in the US
Let me know what else I should consider and how/if I should tweak for speed.
For something like that speed won't be that big of a concern, anything
you do will probably be fast enough. Obviosuly it never hurts to
consider speed and always try and make things as fast as you can, but if
you find yourself trying to do something that will be fast and cannot
manage to get it working, don't hesitate to consider doing it a slower,
yet easier way. It would probably take some extreamly bad code to make
the site slow enough to notice any problems with a setup like that.
