Pure PHP database engine...?

Postby daltonlaffs » Wed Sep 14, 2011 5:17 pm

To make a very long story short, I dislike MySQL greatly, and I'm in a situation where I can't install another engine.

That got me thinking, is there a database engine in pure PHP? As in, no dependencies other than a writable filesystem and PHP itself? I only need the most basic of features, like searching for rows and being able to add/remove entries from anywhere in the database. It would be awesome if I could avoid MySQL for this simple project!

Why do you dislike MySQL?

Can you install Postgre or MSSQL on a different server and just connect remotely to it?
