  • MySQL Running Alongside SQL Server - Any Issues?

    I have a dedicated Win 2k3 server. All my sites are asp/sql server 2k. I now want to add a forum to one of the sites and possibly others in the future.

    Will I run into any problems running these two database servers(MySQL and SQL Server 2K) on the same machine? Also, does the purchase of vbulletin include a top to bottom installation manual for a setup like mine? I currently do not have php or mysql on the machine.

    No problems at all, installing MySQL is just the case of running an installer.

    Double Click, answer some installation questions and install. You might want to install the management applications too. The MySQL documentation is very thorough regarding installs.

      Sure, it's easy to install, but perhaps problems arise after the install. It just seems to be the track record with windows. Has anyone actually tried this?
