Hi, I've spent the last couple of weeks developing a rather blackhat type site in PHP/MySQL and I'm pleased with how it's turned out, infact I think there will be quite a few people who might like to buy a copy, so there are two reasons for my rather unortadox question. A) The site is pretty simple on the back end, just a handful of SELECT statements, no AJAX or anything, BUT it'll be getting huge spikes in traffic, from around 30 hits a day six days a week to all of a sudden getting 100k hits in the space of an hour, so perhaps I could make a much more efficient C++ version? B) As I might indeed sell the script, why is it more developers don't use C++ (as one example) when they want to protect source code? It's not hard to null PHP code is it. Welcome any random thoughts .
