You might check this topic, if you are about to select XML or JSON.

You could start by telling us what "many" is and how do you imagine using such settings. If its just on login, or do you plan to store data like levels, kills, etc.

I wouldn't use XML for anything. Stick with SQLite or MySQL

Depends on what you're storing. For example if you're storing player levels you could use a combination of element data and account data (Or instead use tables + mysql, get value from mysql and add it to Lua tables, then export a function to get a player's level from the table). If you're storing user credentials, then use mysql.

XML is only useful for configurations which you want to be able to change through a normal text editor, but even for that case, JSON is probably faster and easier. SQL is best for pretty much anything else.
