    How advanced is to use Postgres with SilverStripe? Link to this post

    Hi all:

    I would like to use Postgres like data store with SilverStripe.
    I read in this topic that
    SilverStripe uses MySQL to store most of its data. It says also that Summer of Code guys is working on Postgres and MS SQL server usage , via the PDO database abstraction layer.
    How advanced is this? Can i use now Postgres?If yes, how? If not, is there any roadmap for this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi all:

    Nobody knows the answer? Or nobody is interested in using Postgres?

    I try to change the install.php with this configuration as i can read here. The code now is:

    $databaseConfig = array(
    "pdo" => "true",
    "type" => "pgsql",
    "server" => "localhost",
    "username" => "sss",
    "password" => "yyy",
    "database" => "SS_mysite",
    );

    but it does not work.The "SilverStripe CMS Installation" says that "These database details don't appear to be correct".

    Anybody can help me?
