    Hi guys.
    First: Thanks you very much... I guess that all the words that i could say won't be enought.

    Second: I need to do data mining.
    How can i do this using ISPConfig? It's possible to use PostgreSQL?

    Can you help me please?.

    Thanks you again.

    ISPConfig is 'just' for managing websites and mail accounts. Datamining is a very different objective. You can user Postgress or any other database to store and aggregate your data, but you will need tools to gather and interpret the data. I suggest you select a datamining tool 1st and then select a supported database.

    thanks. but.. could you help me to choose an adecuate tool for data mining?
    i'm a little bit confused, 'cause i need that a website that is over ISPCONFIG connects to a database server that can do the data mining.
    It's this possible?

    Choosing a tool depends on your requirements and is not something that can easily be answered.
    Sure, any website can access a database anywhere if you write the program and give the right permissions on the involved systems (grant access from your webserver to your database server if they are on physically different machines).

    Google for "datamining tool" and you'll get >10 million hits. Analyze your goals, define your strategy and do a tool selection is the best advise I can give on a forum. Don't start with a tool selection if you have none or only a vague idea of what you intend to achieve.

    As Martinfst posted, this is not really a question related to the fact that ou use ISPConfig or not, as ISPConfig has not to interact with this databse. you can use any database on your ISPConfig server that is supported by your operating system (Linux) and your programming language (PHP, Perl, ...).

    ok Till. I understand but... It's possible that i can have the two database servers runing at the same time (MySQL ans Postgre). ?
    My idea is use only one server for the two tasks (Hosting and Database server)
    (My sql is not than powerfull as Postgre ¿i'm wrong?

    thanks for your time and patience...
    :rolleyes:

    question...

    thanks guys...
    so if i can run postresql with mysql at the same time... also i can do it with oracle.
    Do you know if exists a free distribution of oracle for linux?
    it will help me a lot for the data mining.

    Thanks again!!! you're great

    Are you interested? ... maybe if you want we can talk about it, or we could use it for a "Super Hosting with ISPConfig"... :D It's Sound's great.
