    Unanswered: Sybase for PHP

    Hi

    I recently noticed in phpinfo(); that many hosts support sybase.
    Just wanted to know if its any better than using MySQL. Is it ?
    PostgreSQL has more features and functions than MySQL (3.x and 4.x) but not all hosts seem to have it. But recently I found out that many hosts are supporting Sybase but theres no talk of it.

    For developing applications in PHP, would Sybase be a better option than MySQL ?

    Thanks

    For a generic database-using webapplication, I don't think it wil will matter much if you use MySQL or Sybase.
    If it is a heavily used OLTP-application, or if it requiers specific functions or features that Sybase can provide, switching to Sybase might be good.

    Thanks for your input. I was just wondering why so many hosting solutions were providing Sybase support.

    Any many of them also have something called Sybase-CT ? Is this some lighter version of Sybase ?

    Thanks
