  • Database Driver Question

    In theory, if you modified all the MySQL functions in db_mysql.php to Sybase functions, and installing vBulletin from scratch--would vBulletin run?

    Nope! You'd have to modify most of the other files as well

      The reason is that the syntax of the various different RDBMS engines (eg Oracle, Sybase etc) is different. Eg Sybase has a different syntax for SQL JOINS and LIMIT isn't supported at all.

      Matt Rogish (MattR on these forums) of FanHome.com has converted vB 1.1.x to run on Sybase, you could ask him for some more details on how he went about it.
