  • derby vs PostgreSQL

    I am using Mirth out of the box installed with the default derby database. I am running 40 channels, relatively low volume. Is there any advantage to switching to PostgreSQL?

    NEVER USE DERBY IN PRODUCTION.

    Not yelling at you , just yelling. Using Derby is a running joke in the mirth community for anything really. Even development.

        Exporting the messages and re-importing them is rather painful - you would have to get the via the API typically.

        To move to postgresql without keeping prior messages:
        1. Take a full config backup.
        2. Stand up your postgresql instance and create db for mirth (usually "mirthdb") and a named user with appropriate permissions.
        3. Fix mirth.properties stuff (last few dozen lines, bottom of file, most lines are comments).
        4. Restart the engine
        5. Import the file from step 1.
