    You mentioned that if you went the MySQL route, some things wouldn't be possible. We can all let our minds wander in regards to what could be possible with a move to MySQL, but what are some of the things that you have already determined we would lose with such a move?

    I personally like the idea of moving to MySQL...It will enable us to access the data for other purposes, but I also like the ease of use and most of the features currently present...

    Just some little things would be lost... for example realtime record locking (if a user is editing a customer, other employees can't edit it until they are done). Without that, you could have an two employees editing the same customer, with only the last changes being applied.

    Yes, you can run PHP on Windows.

    Hi Shawn,

    Will you start a new "wish" list before starting redevelopment.
    There are still some things most of would like to see added and maybe this would be the time to stick all our ideas together to even further improve the package.

    Kind regards

    Hein

    Well, if it's ever been mentioned before, then I probably already know about it.

    Understood, but even I know a couple of things that I haven't mentioned before ... :)
    Mainly 'cause we were waiting for Filemaker 7, as most things were banned to that version ;-)

    Regards

    o.k., but we're going to be thinking of the things we would like / need in combination any system from now on ;-)
    So we won't be bothered with the impossibilities of either PHP/MySQL or Filemaker, o.k.

    Regards

    I am not using the web interface right now, and see no reason to use it in the near future. I need the program to do what it is doing right now, on a windows machine. I guess I can just keep using the last version you will be releasing before going to web-only, for as long as I need, right?

    The main reason I never went with the web-based system is because I didn't feel good about having CC details on a machine that is connected to the web all the time.

    Well even though it would be web based, there is no reason it would have to be on a public web server. You could run the web server on your local machine if you wanted.

    Shawn,
    I agree that PHP/MySQL seems to be the best way for it to go. What functionality would be lost for certain? I'll probably have another post with more questions and thoughts soon.
    Thanks,
    Lewis

    I vote for PHP/MySQL as well. It seems as though this is the way forward and will provide us with the most flexibility in the future as well as the possibility to better integrate with other software and services. I think that a full integration with CPanel/WHM would be possible if someone wanted to do it :D

    How will automated tasks be done in a PHP/MySQL version? I'm assuming some external application that pulls info from MySQL, but just checking.
