simplest replaceable tiny database for webapp - other than sqlite

Hi Experts,

Is there anything other than sqlite that could be used to store records really easily for a webapp?  Something entity-driven would be great - or anything super simple?

Thanks!

I don't know what 'entity-driven' means.  If you are accessing it thru a web page on a web server, your choices are:

1. Write your own but I don't recommend that.
2. Use an SQL database like MySQL, MS SQL, or SQLite.

Just about everything else is much more complicated.

Well when you say "tiny" what you really expect...what issues have you encountered with the present database (i assume that your webapp uses a database)
pcelbaCommented:
Use whatever your web server provider offers. You may just ask for the database setup and everything else (except programming) is not your problem...

And remember Once you start with databases forget about simplicity.
