Any analysis of web site use has to be done carefully as 1000 online users does not equate to 1000 hits a second - more likely 50 - 80 depending on the site - and also remember the difference between hits and sessions. Where the webserver serves PHP pages and other files (images), the latter can be quite easily moved to a "media server" so as to leave your DB server alone.

Personally I use FB with S/S on large sites with no issue.

However with FB and IB going >different ways do you think there might be future issues with the native >IB drivers in PHP?

The basics won't change, and most people still only use the basics. And who knows what Embarcadero will do????

The only issue I've found is with blobs ( make sure you have the latest version of PHP - there were some dicky ones a while back that stuffed up blob access ).
