 Dummies::Storing Data with PHP — Flat File or Database?
Flat files are particularly useful for making information available to other software, such as an editing program or a spreadsheet.
Flat files can be looked at by anyone with access to the computer directory where they are stored, so they are useful when information needs to be made available to other people.
Databases require more start-up effort and use more space than a flat file, but are much more suitable for handling complex information.

 Database   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The flat (or table) model consists of a single, two-dimensional array of data elements, where all members of a given column are assumed to be similar values, and all members of a row are assumed to be related to one another.
In practice, relational database management systems rewrite ("optimize") queries to perform faster, using a variety of techniques: In the "join" the primary optimisation is obtained through the use of indexes to prevent the building of the complete cross-product which would otherwise be necessary.
This doesn't fit well with a SQL database where user-defined types are difficult to define and use, and where the Two Great Blunders prevail: the identification of classes with tables (the correct identification is of classes with types, and of objects with values), and the usage of pointers.

 Database Types, Flat-File or Relational?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
One of the main problems with using flat files for even a semi-active database is the fact that it is very prone to corruption.
A single connection to a relational database can access all the tables within that database; whereas a flat file implementation of the same data would result in a new file open operation for each table.
Flat-file databases are not as scaleable as the relational model, so if you are looking for a suitable database for more frequent and heavy use then a relational database is probably more suitable.

When Is Flat OK? Anyone who runs a business of any size and has a personal computer will have a database program.
Database programs can be scary--especially when you get to the kind of full-featured "relational" ones with programming language, like dBase IV or R:Base for DOS.
Until recently, "flat filers"--database programs that put all the information of one type in one file--were limited by the machine itself.

 - What is better flat file or database? :: Web development and technology forum.
Flat files are text files stored in the computer file system.
The information in the flat file is stored as strings, and the java, vb c and whatever program or PHP, asp, jsp or whatever server side script that retrieves the data needs to know how the data is stored.
Flat files are available and versatile: You can create and save data in any operating system's file system.

 Flat File Database - Dev Shed   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
If this really is a text file rather than a real database I would suggest you'd move on to mysql or similar if you only can.
I am also not sure what other databases I can use but I am open to suggestions (but not solutions such as msql, mysql etc as I believe they are not supported on my server and that they would be overkill anyway).
I was thinking the top part where it opens the file could be at the top, say in the head tag.

 Flat File Database for Inventory? - osCommerce Community Support Forums
A flat file would be a different kind of database (actually, what it is saying is that you are going to skip the database altogether and just use a regular file as if it were a database).
You could certainly edit osCommerce to use a flat file for inventory, rather than MySQL, but this would seem to be a lot of work.
Flat file databases are not really great for e-commerce anyway.

 Flat File Database Demo
Of course flat files won't match the built-in flexibility of something like MySQL, but you are free to program with them in any way you see fit.
The 'file pointer' is incremented by one, so the loop will start reading from the next line of the database.
What we have here is a very basic script that reads a flat file database just by using a loop, then breaking down the text into variables and spitting them out.

 SecuriTeam™ - CGI Flat File Database Manipulation Vulnerability
A flat file database is a standard text file used to store database style (i.e., fields and rows) information.
When the database is used to store both user supplied data (such as e-mail address), as well as system data (such as user privileges), an attacker may be able to manipulate the system data.
Ideally, SQL databases should be used instead of flat file databases.

 Flat file database   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
I can get the apps to write and read plain text files right in the cgi-bin directory, too, so I can use that as a simple, flat file database.
Now, the question is, do I write all the database access/update/sort/search/etc. features myself, or is there some Python module that has implemented some useful functions that I should build on.
I'm pretty new to Python (though not to programming), so if there's a standard way most skilled Pythonistas would approach something like this, I'd like to know what it is. And if there's something that goes beyond flat file and has some relational support as well, all the better.

 Macintosh Underground :: View topic - Flat File Database Implementation Ideas   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
Nothing advanced, it is just for a simple Resource Management System and we can't afford a dedicated remote database (I work for a non profit and my job isn't a programming job, I had to talk them into this).
The only thought I had that would be more efficient then loading the entire database into memory for each access and searching the entire thing was to store each entry as a different file and make use of find/grep to locate entries.
The only other thought I had that would work with either multiple files or a single file using a header, was to create my own index with jump cues using a file name for multiple files or a line number for a single file.

 [SOLVED] CMS Installation - Flat File & Database Connect
Since I can't store it in the database (because It's the thing that actually connects to the database), I decided to store it in a flat file (.txt).
Text files can be read by a browser, which means anyone who browses to your site and types "Database_Connection.txt" into the browser would have instant access to virtually everything they need to connect to your database.
For instance, in your database connect file, you are trying to use the function "file_get_contents" on the file pointer "$connect_to_database", yet you don't even open the file until after you try to read it.

When designing a website, the same sort of problem can arise, you have a project that needs a database setup, but you either don't have the money for a database package, or it's such a small database, that using a commercial package isn't worth the trouble.
