why deploy the database server before the application server?

I forgot the answer to this, what could go wrong if you deployed the application and then deployed the database? Thank you.

If this is some kind of test question - well, good luck!

As far as the "real world":

a) you can (and should) be able to develop the application independent of the actual database server. It's common to use a "mock server" for scenarios like this.

b) Once you're ready to deploy, it makes sense to do things in the following order:
1) install, configure and verify OS and patches
2) install, configure and verify the database
3) install, configure and verify the application

This isn't a test question, I am just trying to why it is important to deploy the db first.
