Type of database.

  • 'mssql' - MS-SQL
  • 'mysql' - MySQL or MariaDB (Will default to the newer MySQLi driver if enabled on the server. Otherwise, falls back to the legacy MySQL driver.)
  • 'oracle' - Oracle (introduced in 1.5)
  • 'postgres' - PostgreSQL (introduced in 1.7)
  • 'sqlite' - SQLite (introduced in 1.13)
Older versions may have used "pgsql" or "PostgreSQL" instead of "postgres". The documentation was updated to use "postgres" in 1.8.0, but the switch may have been made earlier.
