I don’t understand why you need to bait others with your highly
subjective opinions and in this case, obviously under informed.
698 pages of PostgreSQL listserv archive search results for the word
“corrupt” is not subjective. I don’t own the site, nor are these my
list serve posts.
And seeing how I know about them, I seem to be quite informed.
PostgreSQL has corruption issues like any other database I’ve ever
Ignoring of course that there are more than 2x the number of hits
returned from a google search for ‘mysql data corruption’ than
‘postgresql data corruption’ and the fact that mysql is notorious for
data corruption, that would make sense.
That’s exactly my point, all databases have corruption issues,
including the great and mighty PostgreSQL, or perhaps “especially” is
a more appropriate word here.
Personally, I think it’s an insult to consider mysql in the same league
I like it just fine, but I’m not going to be so naive to think my data
can’t be corrupted just because I’m using PostgreSQL.
But when the data really matters, it’s postgres.
When the data really matters, I make backups.
