question about auth-file in dbman sql
Ive changed the auth.pl in the (standard)dbman that it gets username and password right out of the default.db.

Now Id like to upgrade to the mysql-version of dbman and wonder if this would be possible.

best regards
Bernd

Uh...MySQL is a "relational" database application. All you have to do is create additional "tables" rather than "db" files and then connect "records" (rows or toples) by key identifers (i.e., foreign keys).

All you would have to do is IMPORT the different database files into DIFFERENT MySQL tables within the same database.

I would recommend doing some research on "relational" databases before plugging away with DBMAN SQL...understanding basic database design fundamentals will do you a world of good.
