Use external database

Hello!

Any chances to switch YT to some external database like MsSQL?
Hi Vasiliy,

Still, YouTrack uses it's own database and direct database migration is not available. You're able to accomplish this via YouTrack-> CSV export (Issues in CSV) and utilize the CSV with MySQL.

Thank you.

I'm sorry, i did not wrote it clearly.
I was talking about asking YT use some another database for storing its information instead of it's own one. Like TeamCity can be configured to use MsSQL for example.

Vasiliy,

In this case, importing CSV to YouTrack is available. Again, utilizing third-party database with YouTrack is not possible, but you can export data from MySQL to CSV and then, import the CSV file to YouTrack.

How then i can manage a hot backup of YT? If data was stored in MsSQL i just would create a mirror database and that is.
