In regard of Oracle last acquisition
I for the first time went to Postgre site (I should have done it since a long time!)

An Interesting fact is that it can be installed even if a user has no root privilege
Which if I not wrong might help any user operating out of server with no MySQL installed or if using MySQL for an X-tra fee. However how secured can be such an install at WWW level?

But my main question is:
Knowing it works well in a PHP environment
I am wondering if it can be installed on a local test bed with the following setup:
XP pro running Apache and PHP on Windows
Another word is there a Postgre that can be installed to run with Apache on windows?

If so I will give it a try and supply an addendum to my tutorial in our bag o tricks

Thanks.

You shouldn't have any trouble running it with Windows.

People always get confused about the difference between operating systems and web/application servers.

The two are not related one bit.

PostgrSQL is a database. It has nothing to do with the web at all. It stores data. You need to be concerned about running it on your Operating System.

You can run any web/application server you want on any operating system.

Well, Yes and Not

In the absolute you are indeed correct

But Wins reality sounds a bit different
Here is what I found in a Devshed forum
Plus it seems that no tutorial is available

And further
It would an easy install if one runs for ex: Red Hat on Wins as I do

But my quest lies in using it directly on wins
In the same way MySQL runs on wins within a LAMP environment


If you are in a windows environment, PostgreSQL can only compile using Cygwin which can be very messy
