Supported Databases

VP-CART supports the following databases

Access databases
SQL Server
MYSQL Database on Windows

Microsoft Access

VP-CART comes included with a Microsoft Access database. If you would like to use a different version of Access, we can supply a copy in that format on request. All versions of Access can be used with VP-CART.

Microsoft is an adequate solution for most small to medium shops, which will support thousands of products. The actual performance is very dependent on many factors that include the web hosting company you are using.

A sample shop with products is included.

SQL Server

Microsoft SQL Server is a more robust and efficient database.

Please note that some web hosting companies will charge extra for using SQL Server over using Access.

We will supply a script that creates the VP-CART tables and the VP-CART will automatically handle unique SQL Server features such as date formats. We also have support staff that can answer SQL specific questions. The script is included in the distribution package.

The configuration of SQL Server will be through the normal configuration file and no code changes will be necessary to use all features of VP-CART.

If your business outgrows Access, you can switch to SQL Server with minimal effort. There are only a few VP-CART configuration options to change. We have a migration tool that will allow you to move data from your Access database to the SQL Server Database. This can be downloaded from our Add-ons section

SQL Server is much more complex than Access and anyone using it should have a reasonable amount of expertise.

MySQL is a free database and is supported in all versions of VP-CART. Your site will need to be hosted on a Windows Server that supports MySQL to be able to use MySQL.
