    The guide is great. However, I see only “theory” there and less best practices or recommended solutions. It would be better if there are real solutions with analysis of their advantages and disadvantages.

    My question when it comes to WordPress and scalability is: How good does MySQL scale?
    As far as I know it can work, but there are much better DB solutions. Being able to use a different database then mysql in wordpress would be awesome.

    Currently mysql is a big point in what keeps me away from using WordPress to build a large scale service with a lot of users and user interaction.
    Of course it could work, but I wonder why I should spend the effort to make it work when we could just use an alternative that scales better, faster and is easier to handle – even if that means building things from scratch (mostly).

    I would love to hear thoughts on this, as I love WP but I don’t see much use of it besides the niche BP community and online newspapers.

    And yes I agree with Anh Tran, practical tips would be much better than theoretical talk.

      Hi David,

      WordPress alows to replace some functions with Dropins, and one of them is the DB.

      In wp-settings.php line 87 we have:
      `// Include the wpdb class and, if present, a db.php database drop-in.
      require_wp_db();`

      I don’t know much about it, just to let you know.
