Recently I stumbled across mongoDB, couchDB etc. I am hoping to have a play with this type of database and was wondering how much access to the hosting server one needs to get it running.
If anyone has any knowledge of this, I would love to know whether it can be set up to work when your app is hosted via a 'normal' hosting company.
I use Mongo, and so I'm really only speaking for Mongo, but your typical web hosting environment wouldn't allow you to set up your own database. You'd want root-level (admin) access to the server to set up Mongo. To get that, you'd want something like a VPS or a dedicated server.
Hope that helps! Tim
