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.

I upgraded one of my server to PHP7 to see how my application will work with it. But personally my design has been about MVC. MVC (Model-View-Controller) is a software design pattern built around the interconnection of three main component types, in a programming language such as PHP, often with a strong focus on object-oriented programming (OOP) software paradigms. On the Other hand is Hip Hop Virtual Machine HHVM, HHVM is a virtual machine for running PHP code as well as for running the new programming language HACK it is a virtual machine based on JIT (Just-In-Time) compilation.HHVM is built by Facebook which I know will work better with the MVC design pattern all I have to do is make sure that HHVN handles the business logic of the web applications. In this post, I am going to explain my experience in running PHP7 on my server and how it compares to HHVM performance.

Traffic is one of the most common challenges we experience for new and old websites. But there are many ways to getting visitors to your new website. I will like to recommend that you invest time in creating an SEO strategy that helps you to connect with your customers socially, and encourages them to interact with you this way. But am not going to assume that you want free traffic or paid traffic because the best traffic sources are free. In the beginning, search engines can't work for you because it takes a long time to bring your site to the first page of Google by applying proper white hat SEO techniques. Use any chance to promote your site for free. Free promotion is always welcome, so don't neglect it. Invest into Paid Advertising (Google Adwords, Bing, Facebook, Instagram and others) Get in touch with other authoritative websites in your field and offer them some contribution to their work in exchange for the link or mention.
Well, Here is 22 different ways of increasing your website traffic.

I was working on a design lately where I needed some Icons to represent the menu items to to give it a great view so, I imported a CSS Icon Library. After some discovery I realize that it safer to use HTML5 inbuilt Unicode Icons and Symbols. HTML has some cool original and lite inbuilt Icons that are usable, Instead of importing some icon library that will slow down the site loading speed, We can just use the inbuilt icons and we are ready to go. There is no import needed all we need to do is put the code and it done.
