First off, I am not looking for code, at least not yet. I also honestlly don't know where to post this, but since I'm using PHP, what the heck. If you're an admin and can help me find more relevant answers by changing the "forum type", so be it.
I am currentlly working on a 'social media' site. I have got the profiles system all worked out... but I (obviouslly) need some help! I would like for someone to tell me, in their own, personal opinion, what would be the best and most efficient way to search through 1 billion plus records to find the top ten working with PHP and MySql Server. Anyone who is expierienced in this, please please please help me!
Thanks in advance,
