    Greetings,

    I have a question does mySQL have a mac version of their software? Besides for OS X if not is there another database system that can be used with PHP?

    Sincerely,

    Brett

    According to the PHP documentation online at http://www.php.net PHP supports several different databases. Here isan excerpted list:


    Perhaps the strongest and most significant feature in PHP is its support for a wide range of databases. Writing a database-enabled
    web page is incredibly simple. The following databases are currently supported:

    Adabas D
    Ingres
    Oracle (OCI7 and OCI8)
    dBase
    InterBase
    Ovrimos
    Empress
    FrontBase
    PostgreSQL
    FilePro (read-only)
    mSQL
    Solid
    Hyperwave
    Direct MS-SQL
    Sybase
    IBM DB2
    MySQL
    Velocis
    Informix
    ODBC
    Unix dbm

    Whether there is a MAC port for PHP, I don't know. Perhaps there is. You'd do best to check out the docs available at the php.net site.

    Mark-
