Implementation and Tool
Language: PHP / JQuery / Ajax
Technologies: Drupal / PHP / JQuery / Ajax / MySQL / caching techniques
The main problem while creating the project was to increase the website performance and to reduce the server load. To solve these problems was used the content caching with Memcache and also nginx was used on the server.
Drupaldriven.com project was launched seven months ago. The time and practice shows that CMS Drupal 7 was a right choice. Drupal is always in the process of improving: new features and functions always appear and their implementation doesn’t harm the website functionality.
During the time passed a lot of content has been created and hundreds of users have been registered. The database of the website grows day by day but it doesn’t affect its performance.
It had been decided to use CMS Drupal 7 for the project implementation. The reasons why Drupal had been chosen are as follows:
- High flexibility and scalability that allows to increase the website functionality in future without visible trouble and to set up any changes in the existing functions;
- The increased speed of the tasks because of numerous ready solutions that are available;
- Flexible theming;
- High level of security;
- Easy administration;
- Quality documentation.
