I can see that these pages are a bit dated now but thought I'd share with you my little bit.... I have altered the code in many of my postnuke blocks to cache their output to .txt files then next time they are called the code compares filemtime() of the cache to fileatime() of any relevant scripts which would update the block..... Thereby the cache is replaced whenever someone uses the update script. I am no programmer however and I wonder whether asking the script to check these times takes as long as using the database ??? regards, Bert

Difficult to say - when you already have an open database connection and that information is cached, then it may be faster via the database than using file*time() on some slow file system. But in most cases, the file*time() should still beat the database query...
