PHP Video: always MySQL with PHP?

Hi,

In this HD video (running time: 4:06), I answer a question put to me recently:

Should you always use MySQL as your database when working with PHP?

Yes, this is a beginners question, I know. Nonetheless, it is a legitimate question that I think is worthy of comment. In answering this question though, I briefly talk about the other database options you have with PHP.

Note: I am using Youtube’s new HD streaming capabilities as an experiment. This is 720p video so you should have a fast connection to watch it, or some patience. If you find the video is stuttering, just press ‘play’, then pause it and then give it a minute or two to download.

Thanks,
