Hello,

I'm beginning to evaluate ClearOS. I have a question. What in ClearOS depends on MySQL? What would be broken if I remove it completely?

Has anyone investigated if these dependent applications are compatible with PostgreSQL?

I spent many, many hours extricating MySQL from my infrastructure and would like to avoid using it again if at all possible.

Thanks!

    Would there be any support for replacing the app-system-mysql with sqlite? One less running daemon is one less running attack vector...

    Joshua,

    There's two MySQL engine's that could possibly be installed...the 'standard' MySQL is a module that you would normally install if you wanted a relational database, based in MySQL. That module is 'app-mysql'.

    The second MySQL engine is built in a sand-boxed environment...it is used for webconfig applications that require a database...the ones that come to mind:
    [ol]proxy reports
    mail archive[/ol]
    This module is named 'app-system-mysql'.

    Hello

    I dont think any thing in clearos is dependant on Mysql being installed, as you do have the option not to install it when you first install clearos.

    I dont know for sure, im still new to all this linux stuff :blink:
