We use it here, and its nice and reliable.  Maybe not as fast as
MySQL, but server-side Java is involved anyway so it doesn't have to
be.  :-)

Basically mysql is great for raw speed, postgresql when you need
complicated sites with transactions or PL/SQL like scripting.  Both
are free -- Debian got them to cough up a GPL mysql-server, but
hasn't packaged it yet.  :-)

I'll have postgresql support added to ProFTPD soon (I wrote the MySQL
support).  And probably write something for postfix next.

I added a postgresql auth module to Apache itself this July, but it
probably isn't well documented.  Yet another thing to do before
freeze.  Not sure how PHP3 is doing.


<BenC> it must be getting close to release...Guy has been revived...we
       have all of the "debian sucks, here's how to make it better"
       threads, and now the "internal disputes" scenarios....when a
       main system crashes, we will be ready to send potato to the masses
