    Unanswered: Postgres in a website?

    Hi everyone.

    I have this questions on "strategy", not necessarily on detail.

    1. I one develops in the PC a server based application, in order to move it to a website, I suppose that one has to do a backup/restore?

    2. The website has to provide the PosgreSQL database server, to begin with, or does one have to install it in one's website?

    3. If the website hoster provides the PosgreSQL, does the website host run a SINGLE PostgreSQL service for every website that needs the PostgreSQL server, or does a PostgreSQL service run for EACH such website?

    I still don't have a website, but hope to get one, just to learn some about web database use. Later, though. I know it is not a simple thing.

    1. Yes, backup/restore is the best way to move a database.
    2. Either way works, but host provided is better in most cases.
    3. Depends on many factors.

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.

    Thank you Pat Phelan.

    Your replies make sense enough for me, but most likely will have more meaning as I move along.
