Arvixe Hosting Question

I got the half off 2 yr hosting plan with Arvixe at a great rate of $48 for two years.  The account is set up and went to install mojoPortal and it said to set up db first so although I'd "installed" mojoPortal on my laptop using SQL Server 2008 Express for the database I went into the Arvixe cPanel to set it up via Arvixe but saw the db available did not include SQL Server.  Sales folks say it'll be $120/2 yrs for a PersonalClassASP SQL Server.  that's not a bad price but if the account I have now will work as good do i really need the SQL Server ASP plan?

Re: Arvixe Hosting Question

mojoPortal supports also MySql and SQL CE (SQL Compact Edition), SQL CE is the easiest to install but the least robust for performance and load. MySql is pretty robust, this site uses it, but it requires extra installation steps to upload the mysql data layer package for mojoPortal. So if MySql is available at no extra charge you could use that, or you could use SQL CE but I would not use SQL CE for any real important site where you want to have high traffic. Also our WebStore feature is only supported for MS SQL or MySQL so if that is important to you then it rules out SQL CE.

SQL Server is the most robust db platform and generally what I would use in most cases.

Note that our codeplex download page has different packages to install mojoPortal for different db platforms.

Hope that helps,

Joe

Re: Arvixe Hosting Question

That does help Joe, Thanks!!

Arvixe looks to offer SQL Server 2012 Express database - will mojoPortal work with 2012?
