    We are in the process of installing Sitefinity at our school.  We already have a SQL Server 2005 installation.  I want to run Sitefinity on Server 2008 and I would like to use the SQL server we already have for both a production and a development database system instead of purchasing two copies of SQL Server 2008.  Is this possible?  If I understand the installation instructions clearly, I should put the database on the same machine as Sitefinity.  Can you clarify this for me?

    Hello Mike Henderson,

    Sitefinity supports SQL server 2005 and 2008. It is not required that the SQL server is not the same machine. It could be separate server or another remote computer. I suggest that you should use the same version of SQL servers. The databases created with SQL server 2008 cannot be restored directly on SQL Server 2005 which could cause some troubles ( the whole database should be scripted in this case).
