It would be great if SuiteCRM supported using Postgres as a database backend.
I’ve started working on this at https://github.com/ben-github/SuiteCRM/ using the pg patches from https://github.com/amusarra/sugarcrm_dev_PostgreSQL and applying them to SuiteCRM 7.0.
https://github.com/ben-github/SuiteCRM/tree/718eef3100fd3b10da94711e178d5b9d9087aad7 seems to work fine. I didn’t do much testing, but I did a fresh install with no errors.
Since then, I merged the 7.0.1 changes and that seems to have broken stuff. Maybe some modules now loading (7.0 from git didn’t load AOS quotes and other modules) aren’t compatible with the pg changes, but I haven’t looked beyond seeing that fresh install didn’t work.
If anyone wants to help with testing, etc, that would be great. If SuiteCRM is interested in getting these patches into the main release (once they are ready and tested, etc) that would even better.
