I’ve looked a little into CouchDB, which seems very promising as a way to share data in a way that can be accessed across various devices and used offline. Does anyone know if (or how) a CouchDB server could be set up at Reclaim Hosting?
cPanel is pretty exclusive on MySQL for databases. I think if you wanted to use an alternative database engine it would have to be on its own server and connect to it remotely. I see an older feature request for cPanel to support this at https://features.cpanel.net/topic/as-a-server-administrator-i-want-support-for-mongodb-or-couchdb-so-that-i-can-support-schema-free-databases but doesn’t appear to have gained any traction.
