CMS Encore Pro supports a wide variety of databases.

Encore uses its database to store website project information, including website project code, images, stylesheets, etc. Typically, there is one database per website project, however, by using multiple targets and parallel templates, one website project can be used to generate different platforms, e.g. Website, Intranet, PDA, etc.

Currently Encore supports the following database types:
  • MS Access - Supported in all editions of Encore. More suited for small to medium website projects.
  • InterBase - Supported in the Standard, Developer and Enterprise editions of Encore. Suitable for most website projects.
  • MySQL - Supported in the Standard, Developer and Enterprise editions of Encore. Suitable for most website projects. MySQL is free, therefore it can be a very suitable choice.

The upcoming editions of Encore will also support Firebird, SQL Server and Oracle, these databases will ideally be suited for Enterprise level website projects.

Note: Except for InterBase, Encore accesses all the other database types via ADO. For this reason, we strongly recommend that you have Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) version 2.8 or higher installed on your computer. Download from Microsoft.
