View Full Version : Manage MySql

11-03-2005, 04:01 PM
I have MS SQL experience but have been thinking MySql for an application I am writing. My O/R Mapper should handle most of the coding issues, but how tough is MySql to Manage; Compared to let's say MS SQL?

How well does it scale running on a windows box?

Any recommended sites or books, to get started?

I have only limited MS SQL experience, but MySQL is easy to pick up (there are differences for more sophisticated applications/queries)

I have had MySQL running under wwindows with no problems (but for a reletively infrequently queried db.

MySQL is easy. You can do most stuff in phpMyAdmin. From what I remember of MS SQL, MySQL is far less problematic.

Thanks that is good to know. It seems to be a much cheaper solution. No doubt SQL 2005 looks to have some nice features.

ANyone have any experience. From reading the FAQ it say's MySql does not need shared storage. That is great I hate SANS...

But how exactly does it work?
