Oracle just put a price on InnoDB. So unless you got $2000 a year - NO. http://www.mysql.com/products/

Postgresql is your next choice.




Not true. Nothing has changed, MySQL is still under a GPL/commercial dual license. If you're not embedding, then of course InnoDB is free.

FYI: InnoDB is transaction safe. MyISAM being ok for basic things.

I would say if you're using MyISAM for basic things, you might as well go with SQLite.

agreed

That's actually what I'm looking at right now. I'm half way into my project and it's all freaking mysql :( On the plus side, the SQL is abstracted decently enough that I don't have to change my body of code to any major degree.

Any experience or articles you like that talk about transitioning between the two?
