Mysql 5

Hello, I've used TCH for a while now and I am very pleased with your service and support.

 

Now I have another request. To complete an academic project I need a trigger-capable database. AFAIK, the only version of MySQL with this feature is MySQL 5.x.

 

Considering the version you currently use (4.1.21-standard) and two last-year answers about MySQL upgrading plans (here and here), I assume you don't plan on upgrading it in near future.

 

Is there another way of using it? I mean, kind of a private installation or something?

 

Or even installing another DBMS (like PostgreSQL) privately.

 

Thanks in advance,

José Luís

While you can't do it on a TCH server you can set up your computer to do some testing using XAMMP.

Bruce, thanks for your answer! I did installed MySQL 5 on my computer, and will test it locally. But I also have to present this assignment and I intended to demonstrate it "online" so each of the professors could try it online. Hence the TCH x MySQL 5 part...

I assume it won't be available until june?

What other suggestion do you have?

Depending on the file size, you could load XAMMP on a USB drive, then use it to demonstrate it "online". I use this method to demonstrate website designs to prospective clients and it seems to work rather well.

Excuse my English. I meant I'll have to show it really online: multiuser environment... :wallbash:

 

Not sure where you found that date but to my knowledge there are no plans at this time to go to MySQL 5

Sorry! I found NO date at all. I asked about June because my presentation should take place on July. So, if, by any chance, TCH decides to upgrade to MySQL 5 until June, I'll have time to install it on my domain, test it and use it during my presentation... :)
