Drupal is one of the most popular open source CMS applications available – and it runs primarily on a MySQL backend. Out of the box, the schema is well tuned and indexed. However, there are some ways to tweak the default installation to get more out of the system right from start. Similarly, there is a fair bit of hidden flexibility (especially in the latest version) in terms of database configuration.
In a free MySQL webinar on Wednesday, November 13th at 1pm EST, I’ll go over some of the improvements in Drupal 7 in terms of database connectivity and operation as well as profile the default installation from the database perspective. I’ll also be covering some of the ways to optimize the default application and detailing some of the ways to benchmark your installation.
As something to think about before the webinar, the first person to correctly answer the following question in the comments will win a free, collector’s edition Percona t-shirt:
What is the biggest difference in the database layer (in terms of code) when comparing Drupal 6 to the current release, Drupal 7?
Good luck and I hope to see you on Wednesday!
