Alfresco share connection with SQL


My lab where I work has an alfresco and I can log in from the lab PC with my lab credentials to the alfresco share. I can see the dashboard.

If I install a MySQL or PostgreSQL server on the same computer, can I connect it with my alfresco dashboard??

if yes how can I do that??

Re: Alfresco share connection with SQL

Hi @kazmi5 

If I understand your question correctly, then the answer is no. Alfresco uses a database like MySQL to store the document metadata, which is then displayed along with a document in Share. You will not see anything about the database (schema, tables, etc) inside Share.

So, installing an additional database on your server/laptop will not have anything to do with Alfresco and will certainly not be visible within Share or any other Alfresco UI.

Hope that helps,
