How can I use a SQL database with SpaceObServer?

Answer / Solution

By default, SpaceObServer ships with a SpaceObServer Embedded database (FDB file)SpaceObServer.fdb. You can change this connection by choosing "View / Options / Database" and selecting a new database connection. If you want to use a SQL server database for backing up data, your computer has to be connected to a server with a running MS SQL server. Alternatively, you could use a locally installed MS SQL Server as well. You will also need avalid user account for the database access (user name and password). A free MS SQL server version from Microsoft can be downloaded from the internet or you can use the MS SQL Server installer in SpaceObServer by choosing the corresponding link in "Options > Database".
