    What happened with Great Bridge?


    Sorry to see that have ceased operations.

    http://www.greatbridge.com/

    Anyone have recommendations for a source for some support during a PHP DB system transition from M$$SQL to Postgres ?

    We were trying to put together enough cash to buy some support.

    In retrospect - guess it is just as well we didn't round up enough to buy a *support contract* yet.

    Thanks.

    Um.....if you really need support I would think red hat might be able to help. I mean after all their "new db" server is essentially postgresql. I would also suggest just getting a postgresql book. Getting pgsql up and running is not really that difficult, and the syntax for creating/droping triggers, procedures, etc can all be found on their site.

    Good Luck

    Thanks, and true enough there is a significant amount of information out there.

    We are bootstrapping this business, and so we were looking to outsource the 'care and feeding' of the db server once it was operational until we could afford full time talent.

    Second part of the problem is that the system is in soft roll-out right now, and has over 110+ tables and growing. The only thing that obviously needs to be recreated is referential triggers, and indexes - the customizing of the DDL, and the setup of backup routines and such seem a bit daunting.

    So Red Hat is the 'new' standard bearer - suppose we will see how they fare.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Best,
