Can change MySQL to MSSQL? - koh1605 - 10-19-2011

Hi,

Will like to check if possible to change the database to MSSQL after myBB is installed and if yes how to go about doing it.

Thanks.

MyBB doesn't support MSSQL.

You can write your own DB class file to support it or pay someone to do it, but I am not sure of the limitations of PHP access to MSSQL. I know the list of available functions for MSSQL is about 1/2 of that for MySQL, so you it would likely be less efficient than MySQL, at least code-wise.
