FaxMind Server

Step 4 - Choose a Database Engine

Caution & Tips:
  • Make sure the user has the right to create Database & Tables if you choose MS SQL or MySQL Server.
  • Local/LAN database server is recommended. FaxMind Server may stop response(crash) due to large data processing in a slow network connection environment.

FaxMind Server is integrated with a built-in database engine for small-scale users (less 30 users) to maintain data, you can also use a Microsoft SQL(including MS SQL Server Express Edition) or MySQL Server to protect from power failures, unexpected system changes, and restarts.

Select the database server you would like to use, click Next to set up the database connection.

  • Build-in Dtabase Engine
    The database file will be stored in the Storage Location folder. By default, it is D:\FaxMindData\FaxMindDB.db3.
  • MS SQL Server
    Enter the SQL Instance name, User name and Password (Windows authentication supported) for SQL Server, click Test... button to test the account. If the test is OK, click Next to continue.
  • MySQL Server
    Enter the host name or ip address of your MySQL Server, and specify the user name and password, click Test... button to test the account. If the test is OK, click Next to continue.
