I'm SneakyDave, I've been a LAMP user since the Mandrake and RedHat "Cartman" distro days and PHP 3.3 with its register_globals option being 'true'. Lately, I've made the switch to NginX, using some caching mechanisms (mostly APC), but I'm looking for tips and techniques for moving off MySQL and getting some better PHP performance. I host a few sites on a few servers, mostly hobby sites, and a couple of non-profits. Being raised on RedHat distros makes me fond of CentOS systems, so I thought eva2000's site would be a great fit for me. I'm been a software engineer for 20+ years and enjoy soaking up knowledge from smarter men than me.
