    Technical Databases

    Ok, I'm still trying to find the perfect database (in between hunting for the Holy Grail & a cure for cancer) for holding Inventory, Helpdesk jobs, Knowledge Base, etc.

    What do you use, and how do you find it in operation?

    Personally, I'm trialling GLPI after trying to build a homegrown Access DB, but I have to use an external host for GLPI as the Managed Service won't let me put PHP/MySQL on the main server!

    Looking for a call logging system myself. I've found nothing on sourceforge that's really suitable. I want a really simple interface for logging calls for users that's all. the rest would be a bonus.

    Thanks Diello - that looks great!

    Shame it's IIS - I'd prefer a LAMP solution

    Re: Technical Databases

    I'm thinking of creating something (to flex and recall my php/sql - or lack of - skills) that also will double up as a asset database.

    Gonna revive my old NT4 DC and wipe it and put linux on it - we have (powys has) a in-house customised version which sets up all the relevent stuff like MySql, apache, etc. but if there is some open source thing that'll do all this on this linux box, please point a nice link in my direction

    Cheers,
    N.

    Re: Technical Databases

    i have just installed a copy of manage engine, it gives you a free trial version but is restricted to only one techie,
    the programs functions are great as in u can add users from active directory, send instant notifications via sms or email,(great with my pda!) , log jobs and send feedback to individual requesters and is very user friendly
