    It appears that Sitefinity 4.0 beta won't run with MySQL. Is it correct that the Release Candidate will run with MySQL?

    If we set up a 4.0 beta site now with Microsoft SQL Express, will it be possible to transition that site to run with the Release Candidate and MySQL?

    Hi ChrisS,

    Thank you for your interest in the Sitefinity 4.0 Beta.

    The beta version of Sitefinity 4.0 can work only with MS SQL Server or SQLExpress. However we plan to support all databases that are supported by the OpenAccess ORM. Unfortunately if you develp a website on one database and you wish to transfer to another you would have to use a third party tool to convert the db from MSSQL to MySQL for example.

    Kind regards,
