We want to find terrorist content immediately, before people in our community have seen it. Already, the majority of accounts we remove for terrorism we find ourselves.

Programming Languages and Frameworks used to build Top Nigeria Websites

Programming Languages and Frameworks used to build Top Nigeria Websites.

Nigeria websites are programmed using different languages and frameworks from Education, E-commerce, News, Music & Entertainment, Sports Betting & Updates and Banking are the top most popular websites in Nigeria. Some scale well but I believe scalability has to do with the code and the database structure, This are what most visited websites fail to implement which added to the bounce rate and reduce active user capacity. All this is due to the Developers and the maintenance team of the project. I have decide to take some time out and do a research on which framework / programming languages the most popular websites in Nigeria are using and how do they affect their performance and capacity. Let choose a couple of popular Websites in Nigeria we are going to be reviewing.

How to use Database ( MongoDb ) as session Handler PHP - 2016

By default PHP has an inbuilt session handler that stores session variable by saving session variables into a file. The native sessions just depend on writing a small cookie and file on the server. Database based session allows you to add security functionality to the session layer, Any performance lose or gain by putting your sessions in a database won't be noticeable for the vast majority of applications, however it's more secure if you put your sessions in the database, that being the most developers primary reason for doing so. Database-based sessions are also perfect in server farm environments because a user could visit each server in the course of their visit; file-based sessions would only be valid on that one server. But we can override PHP's built-in session handlers by using session_set_save_handler . When your app gets big and you start thinking of scaling Database based session makes things easier. MongoDB (from humongous) is a free and open-source cross-platform document-oriented database. You can read more about MongoDB at http://www.mongodb.org. Using MongoDb is a way of separating the session management database from the primary sever Database, It is well known that most PHP websites use MySQL as their primary database. I prefer not to let the session handler implementation affect the primary database performance. MongoDb can also store some special data format and an Object as a whole without any data loss.
