I'm curious as to what the differences would be between using phpBB (or anything else for that matter) with plain ol MySQL or MYSQLi Exstensions? In particular, I'd like to know which would be the easiest on the CPU resources.
I know NOTHING about MySQL, beyond how to create and destroy, and "check with overhead / optimize", and that's really about as far as I'd like to go with learning it, but a little basic info on which to choose would be cool if it could keep my operations as lean as possible!
