Drupal History

MySQL (or an equivalent such as MariaDB)

  1. Drupal 5.x and earlier supports MySQL 3.23.17 or higher. MySQL 4.1 or higher is strongly recommended.
  2. Drupal 6 supports MySQL 4.1 or higher.
  3. Drupal 7 supports MySQL 5.0.15 or higher (or MySQL 5.1.30 or higher), and requires the PDO database extension for PHP.
  4. Drupal 7 has some support for MongoDB and Drupal 8 is likely to be able to to run solely on MongoDB.

There are several drop-in replacements for MySQL. Drupal has been extensively tested with MariaDB, and version 5.1.44 (or greater) is recommended. It is also likely that other drop-in replacements will work well with Drupal, but they have not specifically undergone testing.

PostgreSQL

Note: Some contributed modules are not as abstracted from MySQL-specific code as everyone would like. If you are familiar with PostgreSQL please file issues with those contributed modules as you find them.

  1. Drupal 6 supports PostgreSQL 7.1 or higher
  2. Drupal 7 supports PostgreSQL 8.3 or higher

SQLite 3.x – Drupal 7 only

SQLite 3.3.7 or higher.

Note: Some contributed modules are not as abstracted from MySQL-specific code as everyone would like. If you are familiar with SQLite please file issues with those contributed modules as you find them.

Other database servers

Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle are supported by an additional module.
