I understand you,
but the advantage of having mysql backend is that if one of the two 
servers dies, the other keeps
running with up to date informations, and can also be updated wit new 
informations. When the  other server comes up again
it will automatically sync itself using mysql replica mechanism. if I 
use file backend I have to manually sync
it, and how to keep tracks of modifications ?

for this I choose mysql backend
