#1

Apologies if this is not in the correct place but its fairly general.

I’m creating a very basic web page that is primarily just a few tables.
I would like the tables to pull data from a large database.
I’m doing this in Cloud 9 IDE (so that matters - at least to me - for the moment).
Oh and I would like to do it in rails environment (just because I’m learning ruby and want to use it).

What is best (read: easiest) set up? mysql? sqlite? postgresql?

If you are just doing it for playing/learning purposes then sqlite will work just fine. However if you intend to push your application to production, then I suggest you switch to MySQL or Postgresql
