This article describes how you can change your database server.
Spryker offers support for using MySQL or PostgreSQL as database servers. By default, the virtual machine is configured to use the PostgreSQL database server, but you can easily change it so that it uses the MySQL database server.
To configure the database server you want to use, you have to keep in mind these constants and use them in the corresponding configuration file:
The configuration files are placed under the config/Shared/ folder.
config/Shared/config_default-development.php is the configuration file for the development environment.
Using MySQL as a DB Server
<?php $config[PropelConstants::ZED_DB_ENGINE] = $config[PropelConstants::ZED_DB_ENGINE_MYSQL]; $config[PropelConstants::ZED_DB_PORT] = 3306;
Using PostgreSQL as a DB Server
<?php $config[PropelConstants::ZED_DB_ENGINE] = $config[PropelConstants::ZED_DB_ENGINE_PGSQL]; $config[PropelConstants::ZED_DB_PORT] = 5432;
