    Default Store the database on a shared disk?

    Hi!
    I was wondering if it is possible to store the holdem manager database on a shared disk on my network so that I can use the same database on my laptop and my stationary computer?

    If it is possible how do I set it up?
    My plan was to store the database on a readyNAS duo http://www.netgear.se/Products/Storage/ReadyNASDuo.aspx

    whoa, that's quite a machine. But overkill imo, if you plan on using it just for HEM. I am using Linux server and have postgres 8.4 installed there. You could just use and old pc and do the same. put in the corner, install ubuntu or smth on and ur good to go.

    Using a database from 2 computers on a filesystem level is very dangerous and will sooner or later result in a loss of data. So this is on your own risk: http://faq.holdemmanager.com/questio...o+computers%3F

    You should install a postgresql server and use it via network. http://faq.holdemmanager.com/questio...ver+a+Network+

    Yea, thats what i meant, postgres installed on separate computer and connect HEM on it over the network. Postgres 8.4 runs like a charm on Ubuntu Linux. Besides, i only use it from my laptop, i just prefer have it installed on the server since database is pretty intensive application and would kill my laptop.
