Strange that none of the PHP sites are mentioning this, but now that the future of PHP working closely with MySQL is less bright than it was before MySQL’s recent licensing policy change, developers are starting to look for alternatives.
I didn’t even know that Postgres ran reliably well on windows without Cygwin until yesterday. And after seeing how easy it was to install I wish I’d tried it ages ago:
- mmm …
I went straight to download pgMyAdmin after setting up but mysteriously this brother of phpMyAdmin seems to have disappeared from the web.
CORRECTION: name is everything, I should have tried remembering the name right: phpPgAdmin
Of course I would develop on linux if my damned laptop would run it! After trying somewhere around 9 of the latest distros I gave up, something with Packard Bell keyboard drivers that doesn’t go down well.
Unless something changes drastically it looks like a lot of us are going to be busy porting our apps to PostgreSQL.
