Hi Stéphane, Never had any problems with stability on any of my sites, (I don't have transactions enabled) its faster, simpler and a lot cheaper than MS SQL, with good support and documentation from MySQL.com. The real benefit of MS SQL is that most hosts will provide win boxes and MS SQL, but rarely Windows and MySQL. I use both, but prefer MySQL for Web stuff. :) Ant. -----Original Message----- From: thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org]On Behalf Of DESCHAMPS Stéphane DvSI/SICoR Sent: 17 October 2002 11:09 To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: RE: [thelist] Technology change > -----Message d'origine----- > De : thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org > [mailto:thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org]De la part de Anthony Johnston . > Antix > .net/mysql would be my suggestion... > > that way you can build on your asp knowledge and get a > really fast db backend. [...] Although I'm more and more cautious with professing MySQL on a Windows box. On my machine it sure is unstable (and from what I hear with friends it's the same on theirs). Making a transition from Access to MS SQL Server can also be an alternative and fits in this "build on your knowledge" approach. My two cents of euros. s t e f http://www.nota-bene.org/ -- For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archive of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
