    re : Postgres & MySQL

    It depends largely what you want to do with it.
    Large databases need much space and CPU/memory.

    I have a LAMP application server running on a PII-400 with 512MB ram and a 30GB hdd. mysql is used as backend fot phpBB2 and mambo (like this forum) and has now a 2 databases of about 7MB each which forforms still adequate for it's use, although cpu is now up to 97% when adressing the database(s).

    I know a heavily visited forumsite which has:
    two athlon 64 with 1GB ram each as front-end
    three dual operons with 4GB ram each as back-end.for MySQL

    In my opinion it's better to use either mysql or postgres than both
    You might want to check out MySQL website or Postgres website for more info

    SQLite is FAST if you want a small, fast alternative that runs great even on a 486.
