Something has surprised me. I can not remember a single post on this forum about
- PostgreSQL: The world's most advanced open source database postgresql site:webproworld.com 41 hits but
- many about MySQL :: The world's most popular open source database mysql site:webproworld.com 1230 hits
Both are free and some database experts seem to agree that PosgreSQL is a better database platform.
- http://www.webproworld.com/programmi...tml#post483321 They use PostgreSQL in their examples and say that PostgreSQL is a better platform than MySQL.
- The PHP Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks, 2nd Edition - SitePoint Books The authers say the same.
So my simple question is why do so many seem to prefer MySQL over PostgreSQL?
Is it simply because of a larger online community?
