Feature Update: Native Support for MySQL and PostgresSQL Drivers

What’s new:

Yurbi now includes native support for both PostgreSQL Drivers and MySQL Drivers.

Beforehand, when you connected Yurbi to a MySQL or PostgreSQL database, you were required to use ODBC drivers. In order to register a MySQL or PostgreSQL database, you had to log into your Yurbi Server, start the Windows Server ODBC configuration tool, and set up an ODBC connection to your database.

You also had to configure the right version of the driver—either 32-bit or 64-bit—depending on your IIS configuration. If you changed your IIS you had to go back and update the ODBC drivers.

Needless to say, this could become a lengthy process.

Here’s how it works:

When you register a new Yurbi App, you’re now shown a list of different Database Drivers. Simply select your database and Yurbi will do the rest.

  • You no longer have to log into your server and setup an ODBC connection using the Windows Server ODBC configuration tool.
  • You can update your user ID and password directly within Yurbi (rather than updating them in the ODBC tools on the server).
  • You no longer have to check whether your driver is 32-bit or 64-bit. Yurbi automatically detects and updates according to the architecture.
  • Easier than ever to connect Yurbi to databases on Amazon Web Services without having to worry about ODBC.

With this update, Yurbi is easier and more seamless. We think that’s a good thing.
