Support for other database systems than MySQL?
« on: April 26, 2006, 08:00:30 PM »

Hello,

i have been searching for IRC Services that support saving its data into SQL Databases.
I read that Anope supports MySQL, but what about other Database Systems?
Most of my Server Data (like mail and system user) is already saved into a postgresql Database, so I would prefer to use postgresql with anope?

Is this possible?
If its not integrated.. how complex would it be to develope that?
I know the postgresql API so i could write a module, or maybe an odbc version would be even better.

greetings
Dennis

Yeah! I think MSSQL should also be support, it is a very important database server and I'm sure many anope users are on win2k3 servers. Would be great if it was possible to support it. I doubt it would be too much hassle :p

it would be nice if someone of the development team could say anything regarding this topic.
The viewsvn program is broken so I cant take a look at the mysql module source at the moment.

Personally i dont see much point providing support for a commercial SQL system when there is a free cross platform SQL system that can be used instead.

there are a number of free cross platform free solutions - the point is, ideally we wouldnt care what the backend db system was - we'd simply use it and be happy.

I didnt ask that. Sometimes people would like to use the database they already own and operate on even if a free alternative exists.

Dont get me wrong i love how it works im just wondering if support for alternatives is already built in or will be?

thanks
