Alternate DB Options?
Based on some of the other comments I've read in other posts discussing MySQL vs. sqlLite, I've come up with a quandry I'd like to address: what would be the likelihood of offering a few different options for installation (MySQL and PostgreSQL at least) like some of the other boards do. It would be extremely useful for different hosting services. For instance, here at work, we do everything with PostgreSQL, so i'd never be able to install Vanilla to try there. Mark, is this something you'd be interested in including, and if so, are there any keys to an install option you'd like me to work out ahead of time? PostgreSQL doesn't vary much from MySQL in syntax, but the PHP accessor methods are different, so there would have to be a separate file holding DB access methods for both MySQL or Postgres. Pretty easy to overcome by simply including the two files and only include() the one that matches the install at the time you run the script. Anyway, may not be worth the hastle, but I really think it would be worth looking into... especially to integrate PostgreSQL. Thanks for your time!
