Personally I prefer Sybase on Linux, version 11_0_3 is free for production use and 
easy to install.
Sybase 11_0_3 is still a very powerful DBMS although a bit dated by now, Sybase just 
released version 12.5. Why "everyone" is using MySQL I don't know, could it be that 
mod_php is compiled with MySQL support? MySQL is free and there is a lot of support 
from the community since so many are using it.

How would one go about making a mod_php with Sybase support also?

Subject: [PHP-DB] Why use MySQL with PHP


Hi everybody
I'm writing a synopsis about PHP and mySQL.
I'm hoping someone can help me, and tell me why
the combination og PHP and MySQL is so common.
What makes MySQL such a good choice when using PHP?
What seperates MySQL from others dbms?
