    Does anyone know of any existing operational web sites where a massive (ie. millions of records) MySQL database combines with PHP to provide a directory service? I'm thinking along the lines of the White or Yellow Pages or similar. I ask because I'm researching a project which provides a (large) web-based specialist directory service, and I'd like to be in contact with people who've already done it with MySQL and PHP. I use MySQL and PHP all the time for small applications, but I'm not sure how they compare (in terms of speed and reliability) in the commercial world against the expensive alternatives. Thanks for your help.

    We have developed a site for yellow pages and the data compilation is going on. Our database is still very small. So if you want information specific to very large databases our database will not be good enough. But if you need any further assistance/information please let me know.

    my site can be viewed at http://www.bharatyellowpages.com
