MySQL or PostgreSGL?


Hey all,
i want to write a rather simple information system for a small company (upto 5 developers) using a sql database. We run a Linux server, m$ windoze clients.
The question is, which of the two db engines will be better for my purpose? Pros & cons?
Thanks a lot...

I had that same question a couple of months ago....I just went ahead with MySQL and what I can say....easy to install...the documentation is vast and it could be better structured but it's gotten me out of trouble every time...the db is easy to work with, fast...

Hopefully this gives you a thought to munch on...

Cheers!

That is almost as controversial as which distro should I use. Both are fine databases but both have their pros and cons. I would try googling MySQL vs PostgresSQL and read some of the comparison charts.

There's a nice book called PHP and MySQL for Dynamic Web Sites by Larry Ullman (Peachpit Press 2003), which I have found quite useful for creating web-based front ends to MySQL databases.
