Is it possible to use mysql instead of postgresql?


#1

I was wondering if I could start up a develop setup using mysql/mariadb instead of postresql?

If so could you please point me in the right direction, so I can understand how involved such a task would be.

Nope; I’m pretty sure we rely on a variety of PostgreSQL-specific behaviours.

But I promise Postgres isn’t hard to get running :grinning: … drop by IRC if you’d like a hand.

Yes seems like there a fair amount of postgres specific stuff in there.

I have it running no problem with a local postgres instance. Its just that I also have mysql running for a few other things, so I was wondering if it would have possible to “sing from the same hymn sheet” as it were.
