A basic question about databases

April 19, 2016 1.6k views

I was wondering if there were basic guides on how to add and remove databases and copy databases here?

Apologies if this has been asked before…

Many thanks

Hi there,

There’s some great guides knocking about for different database technologies that can help get you up & running. I’d so some research on what database suits your needs (or experiment with a few) and go from there:

MySQL: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/a-basic-mysql-tutorial
MongoDB: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-mongodb-on-ubuntu-14-04
Postgres: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-use-postgresql-on-ubuntu-14-04
CouchDB: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-couchdb-and-futon-on-ubuntu-14-04
Redis: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-use-redis

Hopefully the above will get you going :)
