Setup on a Windows Server 2003 box
« on: October 22, 2007, 07:43:23 PM »
Hey everyone,
  I really like the roundcube webmail. I have noticed that everyone is using MySQL though. My server is running SQL Express 2005. I have been dabling in .ASP and would like to incorporate RoundCube to my site.

Can anyone help me set this up with SQL Express 2005????  What all prerequisites do I need to get this working????

Thanks,
  QWERTYtech

SQL server isn't supported probably (and I speak with no authority) because of a few reasons:
1.) It costs money to acquire legally
2.) It doesn't necessarily adhere to the SQL standard
3.) It's Microsoft :P

I kid with the 3rd point. But honestly, I use MySQL and PostgreSQL for my sites, and I have yet to be upset. Even on an IIS server, you can run Postgre or MySQL ;)

If you know PHP, and you know MSSQL very well, then I'd suggest you take a crack at verifying that everything in the RC codebase is MSSQL compliant. If it is, tell the devs and let them know that they can add MSSQL support. If not, perhaps you could help add another DBMS to the system.
