indexs, primary and such

I have a very small db of only like 15 files, and with 120 records.

If I do a query from the page, via a php file it seems to take 2-3 seconds
for the results to come up.
I'm anticipating having a lot more records, upwards of 300-800 records.

I'm looking for the best way to create my indexes for fast response times. I
think right now that the performance isn't that slow.

My primate key is presently set to ID which is an autoincremting field with
a length of 6.

I do have queries that call for records that match a state also.

Any suggestions? thanks for your time!

EnToone -
basically any column that I would use as part of the record selection
criteria -
i.e. WHERE clauses
JOIN criteria
would be a good column to index on. So map out what you want to do, on
paper, with your select statements and study your where clauses and join
criteria - then index those columns.

let me know how it goes for you .

Hi, I was wandering is there an easy way to rebuild indexs on tables I have the .frm and .MYD files. I read in the mysql manuals about backup_tables and Restore_table that rebuild the index but is there any other way to rebuild them. I'm using Mysql 3.23.53a
