I am a student at a state university and I am trying to install and run WordPress on a domain space I have with the university. The university also allows database accounts, but they only have Oracle, not MySQL...
MySQL is a requirement but is using Oracle an option, or is the database strictly limited to MySQL?
And if so, should I search for hosting a domain name with a MySQL database to be able to make this work? Do most users setup their own hosting and database? Or do people just pay hosting sites that include a database server as welll?
