Tainacan - what is behind the curtain? :)


can you tell me what kind of database engine is behind Tainacan, I’m working on a draft paper about digitalization of our collection, and one part is, of course, about presentation of that collection and about Tainacan as plugin for Wordpress.


Best regards


Hi @Vedran_Serbu!

WordPress recommended database is MySQL/MariaDB. I’ve seen some experiments to install it with Postgress and SQLite, but not sure if it would work for real.

Tnx Mateus, it would do for me, so, in fact, Taniacan is using any database used by running Wordpress installation, so usually it is MySql? Tnx.

Exactly. Our tables are basically extending the default post type tables and MySQL is the “de-facto” database used in WordPress.
