hey guys,
can I use different data bases installed in the same time in my local computer for practing? Because I am learning the CRUD (create, retreive, update and delete) web application...

Thanks in advance!


take care!

You sure can. All common DBs let you have more than one schema, each identified by a different name.

Yes you can install multiple database products on one machine because they usually use different ports to allow client connections. I have MySQL and PostgreSQL installed on most of my systems, and in one case also have SQL Server.
