Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Project Database
Here, we put together frequently asked questions regarding project database.
Q: Where can I can I request support regarding project database.
A: We accept support requests at OSDN Support Request. When submitting a request, configure the category to “Project DB”
Q: If I want to use two or more databases, what should I do?
A: We limit the number of database each project can use, and that is one. This is based on the idea that one database should be enough by splitting a table. But if you really need to use two or more databases, submit support request together with the reasons.
Q: I want to create two ore more users.
A: Every project is issued only one user. Currently, there are no plans as to allowing a project to create multiple users.

Q: Is there any way that I can access from a hosting site besides OSDN.
A: OSDN database server can only be accessed within the OSDN hosting site. You can not access from outside. You may want to use web server or shell server.

A: Based on OSDN's backup policy, we make complete backup by using full dump of the databases once every day early in the morning.
