Mysql And Movable Type

28 December 2003

I think I need to change the underlying database for this weblog to MySQL. I know my host offers and supports MySQL. Why would such a change be necessary?

As I flip through the various plugins and scripts that are offered, I’ve found a high number that require the database to be MySQL.

I have no idea how I’d go about making such a switch? What’s at risk? Could I corrupt the entire weblog? Is a back-up sufficient to insure that I could import the entries back into a new MySQL database?

The more I write about this, the more it seems like a task for another day.
