Hi Scott,

Thank you for the reply, sorry for my slow reply being one of those weeks!

I'm just looking over Innodb v's MyISAM, I can't remember why I picked MyISAM over Innodb might be I thought Innodb was for bigger databases.

I do a lot of INSERTS, once data is inserted I do a SELECT for a partciular field that should have null value and then do some geocoding and once I get the result of the geocode I do an UPDATE.

Users on the web application mostly do SELECT statements, the odd INSERT OR UPDATE when adding a new asset to the system but that wouldn't be often.

I suppose with that in mind there is no reason why I should switch to Innodb and then set up replications and then do hot copying of the Innodb database for my back up.

Would you agree?
