  • > There are legitimate uses for MyISAM, but not many.

    Like maybe a counter script, or some sort of simple log table, which about the most sophisticated things I've ever used it for.
    • No, not even a counter script. Remember, MyISAM doesn't give you transactions, and for a counter script, you generally want to do:

          update counter set value = value + 1
          select value from counter
      and you want to do that atomically.

      Without transactions, why even bother having a database server?
