View Full Version : Why does phpDig rely on creating txt files for descriptions?

06-13-2004, 09:22 PM
I'm sure someone else has probably asked this question (so if there's a link to the answer please forgive me and let me know what it is) but why does PHP dig rely on creating txt files in the text_content folder rather than simply storing the information as a text or medium-text field in the mysql database?

Maybe it's just a no-brainer but I now have about 10,500 urls in one phpdig database and the return time on the search has grinded down to a near halt. So, I was thinking maybe that's part of the problem.

If anyone knows the answer to this question, please let me know. Thanks. And sorry for the bother.

The search is not done using files except for exact match.

Actually, files are only used for text snippet. So when PHPDig open a file the search is already done and you know wich file to open.
