Limbas was originally developed using the ODBC database connection. This promised a large number of possible databases and independence from the idiosyncrasies of native database drivers. Likewise, a separate abstraction layer could be bypassed. Meanwhile, there are several alternatives to ODBC, as well as the desire to use a native driver. Limbas supports from version 4 the PDO interface for the PostgreSQL and MySQL database. If the following modules are installed correctly, the Limbas Web Installer automatically detects the possible database access.

For PHO the following modules have to be installed:

  • php-pdo
  • php-pgsql / php-mysql

the following modules must NOT be installed:

  • php-odbc
