I looked over the upgrade process once I found it and I agree … the upgrade seems easy but I would need to do several so I guess I will just install and re-do the admin of adding back my users.
Re: the MySQL … I looked that over and it seems pretty easy as well … I assume this has to be done on a clean install before anything else … then the users , etc would be added to that DB vs the embedded one. And am I right in thinking that if we decide at some point to go to MySQL that it would be another re-install … or is there some sort of data conversion process that I could use?
Are there any guidelines to embedded vs external DB? Is it a matter of MySQL being more robust or able to scale to larger size? I’m not sure how busy this server is going to get … it’s been the sole tool of like 10 people for a year or so … I’m thinking we could get maybe 100 more but that I think would be about it. So would you still reccomend MySQL for a small system like that?
