    i agree with TeeJay. it's the part designing a scalable system more important than what language you choose.

    Brad Fitzpatrick from livejournal gave a good talk on how they run a successful website. It's not only about mysql but perl too.

    talk available to download at the end of that page.

    also, mod_perl website contains some nice doc on how to setup a scalable system with mod_perl.
    • I've implemented some of the open source LiveJournal tools such as MogileFS and Perlbal, and they've been working great at my current project. That combined with parts of the Practical mod_perl book, the mod_perl website, and many other sources have given me the knowledge to scale it, and I've implemented those methodologies in a couple of places.
