[Tutorial] 10 Steps for Achieving the Maximum Possible Speed for Your MyBB Forum!
WARNING!!!

DO NOT CHOOSE "MEMORY" IN PHPMYADMIN UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO LOSE EVERYTHING IN YOUR HOLE DATABASE FOREVER!!!

The "MEMORY" option moves your ENTIRE DATABASE to your RAM. What does this mean? If you EVER need a server reboot or you lose power to your server (has happened to me several times over the years even in a secure datacenter), then ALL WILL BE LOST FOREVER.

In other words, the MEMORY option means that you DO NOT HAVE ANY OF THE DATABASE STORED ON YOUR HARD DRIVE. It is only in the RAM, and if you know how RAM works then you understand that RAM does not work like storage, it CANNOT hold data during power loss or system reboot.

Put simply, if you choose "MEMORY" (all your databases are stored on RAM ONLY), then you are in IMMINENT DANGER of LOSING YOUR ENTIRE DATABASE AT ANY TIME.

If you are still willing to take this risk, be sure to take WEEKLY BACKUPS, OR, for servers with a lot of traffic and new content, DAILY BACKUPS!!

This, way, when everything is inevitably lost one day, which I guarantee WILL HAPPEN SOONER OR LATER 100% GUARANTEED, then at least you only lose 1 day of data if you took daily database backups.
