    Unanswered: running mysql and postgress on one machine

    Hello

    We have just built an online system for one of our clients using a mysql database.

    They are now considering building another system on the same server but this time using a Postgress database.

    We are concerned that this may inhibit the perfomance of the system currently running on the server. For other reasons such as security and maintenance we are trying to discourage them from taking this route. We believe that the other system should be built on another server.

    Does anyone out there have any experience of the two databases running on one machine and causing problems. Please let me know if you have!

    Cheers
    Billy.

    Technicly there is no probleme to run mysql and postgresql on the same computer. You may use different port and different socket.
    But there is some limitation where dbs are very large.

    This is as we suspected. Hopefully we can convince our client that forking out a little more cash for another server now will save expense in the future.

    thanks,
    billy.
