in thread How to improve MYSQL search performance of perl?

Hi,

Many many thanks for that great article but a question just poped up after reading. It says that mySQL will build indexes for the whole table when calling "CREAT TABLE ....." I suppose it means that I don't need to rebuild an index (my table only has two columns). Ok, even I rebuild an index by myself, how it can be used?

Thanks again,

Nan

    MySQL will choose the appropriate index for the tables involved in your query; in my experience it chooses correctly most of the time. I see from another post in this thread that your query is:
    select topic FROM table1 WHERE uri LIKE '$q'
    You can find out what indexes are used by MySQL in this query by running the command
    EXPLAIN SELECT topic FROM table1 WHERE uri LIKE 'something'
    where "something" is one of your parameters. You can see what indexes are defined on your table by running the command
    SHOW CREATE TABLE table1;
