I just downloaded Mango Blog software and was in the process of installing it when the first screen sto[pped me!!! The very first screen displayed the following message

"You are about to install Mango Blog.

You will need to have a database (MS SQL or MySQL) already created (it can be an empty database)."

and that stopped me.

I have few questions...

1) Do I have to use MS SQL or MySQL to create the database, can I use Microsoft Access and create ColdFusion data source pointing to my database.

2) If I have to create a database before I install Mango Blog how do I find out which tables I need, which fields I need for each table and what about relationship diagram.

I had a look in the documentation but didn't see any mention of database requirements. Where so I find these instruaction.

Looking froward to hearing from you.

Thank you for your assistance.

Hi jfejsa,

1) Access is not supported. You will need to have MSSQL or MySQL.
2) You just need to have a database. But as the message says, it can be empty. The install wizard will create the tables and populate it for you, but it needs a database where to do all that.

Let me know if that answers your questions.

That answers my question, however, I'll have to check with my ISP whether it supports other database management systems then MS Access.
