Amphora Database Server is used with Amphora in a multiple user environment. It enables multiple users to access Amphora databases over a local network. Amphora Database Server is suitable for small to medium winery operations with a small number of users. Amphora Database Server is available free of charge for those who have purchased the Amphora multiple user licence. For those who desire an enterprise database server, MySQL is preferable. In order to use MySQL with Amphora, ensure that you have a properly licenced version of MySQL.
Amphora Database Server is installed on a single computer in your network. Amphora is installed on any computer in your network that requires access to the Amphora database(s). Multiple users can then access the same database(s) at the same time. Amphora Database Server is simple to use and requires no database knowledge. Existing Amphora users who wish to switch to a server database can simply copy their existing database files to the server. Amphora Database Server will then make these databases available to any Amphora installation on your network. Amphora Database Server is able to serve up to 10 databases simultaneously.
Amphora Database Server is provided free of charge, but the Amphora multi-user licence is required.

Setup (all platforms)
If Amphora Database Server is installed on a computer with a firewall, you will likely need to configure the firewall in order to allow communication over the network. In particular, Amphora Database Server requires server permissions. By default, most firewalls will block any program that attempts to act as a server. So you will need to explicitly grant Amphora Database Server permission to act as a server. In addition, all Amphora installations that need to access the database server will require regular (non-server) permissions in order to access data across your network. See the help page for additional information.
