If you were creating a low traffic site to be hosted on a shared ISP (e.g. a cheap www one and not a private one) what DB would you recommend assuming that you could have any of the supported ones?

(I've not used HSQLDB but assuming it's an xml based file)

What's the easiest to do a nightly backup of?

HSQLDB does not uses XML.

If you have mysql on hand, use it. hsqldb stores all information in memory while your forum is running, and you may experience problems with your low cost hosting.

I don't see any reference to Oracle on the Web site. Is this database supported? We're going to be using either 9i or 10g.

Also - does JForum support JDBC connections?

Thanks.

Ooops - just noticed the "search" link. I'll do some more research before posting again.
