MySQL/InnoDB: more optimal to have two non-unique index columns or combine them in unique primary key?
by DesiPower in Databases

I'm using MySQL with InnoDB.

I don't need a primary key in terms of semantics, so does a primary key (or rather, a unique index) make for faster queries than a non-unique index?

I have two columns that are suitable for indexes but are non-unique. However, combinations of the two columns are always unique. The columns are also non-null.

Is it better to just se

How to do a MySQL Insert if unique, but the columns are too long for unique index
