I agree, I'm a big fan of PostgreSQL as well. I started using MySQL with PHP, but now I have used PostgreSQL for three seperate production databases and I find it just as easy to use as MySQL, and much more flexible. I think the general feeling among PHP developers (especially beginners) is that MySQL is easier to work with, but I personally don't understand that. I think the command line 'psql' is just as easy as the command line 'mysql', and when I need a GUI I think pgAdmin II fills in nicely. And you get foreign keys, triggers, stored procedures, sub-selects, unions, etc. etc. etc. Sorry, just had to send a "me too" response... :) -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
