I want to explore the idea of creating a stand alone version of our main product that can be installed by the end user as a single user system, but I need to figure out how to either make the MySQL installation completely click through, or use another database that would also lend itself to migration to MySQL should the user decide to upgrade to the multi-user client/server system.

There are a handful of trigger tables on the MySQL side that upon the data entry of a parameter, run a list of queries/functions on the database side, that I would need to be able to duplicate if it's not MySQL, and the database needs to be installed with enough initial data to facilitate the new user's login, or I guess I could build a way to capture the initial user information needed to log in with a new user onboarding process after installation.

The client side I already have sorted out, I just need to figure out the back end and we'll be in business.

Right now I'm installing the community version of MySQL, then using Navicat to build out the needed tables and other objects by performing a structure synch with a master database that has all the most current table, view, function, and event definitions.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
