My question is: should I use mySQL, ldap or none?
MySQL. Without a doubt.
Thanks Jesse, I was guessing that... Well it's never late to learn new stuff. Regards srosa
bevor you decide to choose mySQL make your mind clear about the follwoing things:
- are you able to replicate your database with mySQL ?
- are these tables tranactional based in mySQL ?
- are you able to do __consistent__ online backups with mySQL ? ( dont bother me with any mysql-dump scripts ... or something like that ... )
- did you ever do a disaster recovery with mySQL ?
- are you able to extend/migrate you database with mySQL ?
so if you really plan to setup a huge server which has to fit these point... well, things twice ;-))
There are more database backend's , e.g. oracle with totally fulfill these points.
if you are not familiar with these point , than you should choose mySQL.
