I'm building a signup for lectures at my university. The number of participaters is limited to 100 for each lecture (altogether 7). Now, it surely will happen, that after the introduction everybody will rush to a computer to sing up. I'm expecting a maximum of 400 signups nearly at the same time.
Now my Question : Is this a problem to handle for either MySQL or PHP ?
Expecing "nos" and thanking in advance

It'll all be handled efficiently on a first come first serve basis....

I take the "efficiently handled" as "400 at one time? Ha - noooo problem".

It depends some on how your server is tuned, also. MySQL has a max_connections at one time. If 400 people hit the page at exactly the same microsecond, then some could be turned away, depends on your settings. But, if it's over the course of a few seconds or minutes..then it'll be handled no problem. I see your problem spread out over something closer to a half hour or hour probably, so I wouldn't worry about it. MySQL handles requests at the same time by delaying one until the other is finished, so you don't have to worry about two people signing up at once or someone signing up after the class is full....
Need any more help, just ask....

Thanks I think that solves it. The moment I encounter the next problem....I'll get back to you.
