Chapter 18. Working Collaboratively > Working with the Collaboration Database

Working with the Collaboration Database

A database is a required part of any Windows SharePoint Services Web site. The information contained in Task Lists, Event Lists, or other lists contained on a SharePoint site, as well as Document Library information, and the threaded comments in Web-based discussions that are contained in a site, are all maintained by a database. You have two choices for setting up such databases when you create a SharePoint site:

  • If Microsoft SQL Server 7.0, or later, is present on your computer, the database will be installed on SQL.

  • If SQL Server 7.0, or later, is not present, the Microsoft Data Engine (MSDE) will be installed when you install Windows SharePoint Services, and MSDE will function as the database.
