grayatrox Posted January 21, 2010 Share Posted January 21, 2010 I have been given the task of setting up a database for my IT club, and if my proposal gets accepted, I will get a blank server to do what ever I like on... well not what ever I like, but you get the point, so the question is.. what OS, and what DBMS? I want to avoid Windows all togehter if I can, for securtiy reasons, and it will make the network admin happy.. which is always a bonus. It has been suggested that for the OS I run Debian and for the DBMS, Post Gress. I have never run either of the two, nor had I even heard about Post Gress until today, and I hear that Debian needs local imput to get it set up - the sever will be run in a virtual machine and I have no idea if I could get access to the main server, being a server that runs most of the University's services. I THINK that the main server is running VMWare, so I may be able to get it set up on my pc to a stage where I can then remote in once the image is on the main server... Any thoughts and ideas will be greatly appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
