How to change database?

first,I used embedded db,but now I want to use mysql,how to change database?just use web console or I should modify wildfire.xml manually?if i must modify this xml file,how to do?who can show me the section of using mysql? thanks a lot

btw:the data in database is unimportant.Data-transmitting is not needed

Hi Jagie,

Since you’'re not concerned about your existing data the easiest way to move to MySQL would be to:

  1. Shutdown Wildfire

  2. Change in your wildfire.xml file

  3. Start Widlfire

  4. Go through the setup wizard

Hope that helps,

Ryan

I want to do the same with SQL Server 2005 Express, but my data is important, any idea haw to copy the embedded DB to SQL?

Thanks

Hi,

either you use the import/export plugin or you shutdown Wifi and look at conf/wildfire.script. You should remove the CREATE TABLE / INDEX lines at the top and run the leaving against your SQL server which contains the Wifi schema. I did never test it, but as it is simple SQL it could work fine.
