Which databases do the CurrentWare Server support?

The CurrentWare Server is compatible with the following databases:

  1. SQL Server Express (default), Standard and Enterprise
  2. Firebird Database

SQL Server

As of 6.0.1 SQL Server is necessary as a database for Currentware.

Please see our informative guide on how to install and setup a SQL Express Server to work with your CurrentWare Solutions here: SQL Express Setup with CurrentWare. During the install you will also be guided as a prerequisite to install SQL Express 2017.

If you are connecting CurrentWare to a SQL Server for the first time, check out the SQL configuration guide.


Firebird Database

Versions prior to 6.0.1 may also be running the CurrentWare Server on a Firebird database. The CurrentWare database is created under:

C:\Program Files (x86)\CurrentWare\cwServer\CWNPFB.CWD

During an upgrade of an older Firebird Database, you will be prompted to install and migrate to SQL.
