Hi Friends,

In the website in which i am developing for every searches made an entry would be made in a table. As a result of this the size of the table grows to great extend. Now i am planning to take the backup of that table periodically and to clean it. this helps to reduce the loading time of sections related to this table,

Now can u give me some valuable solution for this problem...Can i do this ....any idea to implement this from ur side...

Looking for your valuable replies...

Thanks for your suggestion. I will check this with our Client and do this..

Thank you once again..

If I were you, I would run a cron job, once a week perhaps.

An example function using PHP for backing up your DB can be found here:

This could be easily modified to remove backed up records.

Furthermore, ensure you have indexes on your tables to help make them faster when searching.
