Using MySql like GameServer, is that a good idea?

Hey, guys.

Firstly, sorry for that dull question, but… I’m trying to make a very simple mmorpg, and I’m thinking in use the mysql to save the player state and, with a php file, process the requests (save and send data).

I have some experience with php&MySql so I’m willing to take a shot.

But my doubt is, is that a good idea? I mean, about the response, threading, anyway…

One time again, sorry if it was a fool question, and thanks in advance

It isn’t a good idea, it will be to slow, you will run into connection limitations(probably/depending).
