    Will it work on mSQL & PHP3

    Will vBulletin work on a Unix server with mSQL & PHP3 installed? I don't know the difference between mSQL & mySQL and since my ISP offers me mSQL I started wondering :)

    msql and mysql

    from my experience working with msql and mysql, there are some programs where all you have to do is mass-replace 'mysql' for 'msql'. Other programs need a minor/major rewrite because of the differences between mysql and msql. To see the differences between them, visit:


    That will give you a good overview on the differences between them.

      I think, from my distant memories of mSQL, this will not run off mSQL very easily. The main problem would be the long text fields - I don't think that mSQL supports them. There are also some more complicated functions and joins that mSQL will not support. I am not saying that you will never be able to get it running off mSQL, I'm just saying that it would probably be a bit of a hassle.
