synapsen provides its own internal database. Users who operate on Mac OS X, Linux, or Windows alternatively could use an external database like mySQL or MAMP or MS Access. However it is recommended to use synapsen's internal database server which is used as default. If you want to use mySQL or MAMP, you have to have an installation already running. For further information please consult the user manual of synapsen where the required steps are described meticulously in section 2.5.
Attention, important hint for users running Windows Vista: Before executing the installation or update routine of Synapsen, it is highly recommended to disable the User Account control (UAC), because the Synapsen's setup has to have administration rights in order to execute the installation as well as the ordinary Synapsen executable correctly. If you do not want to disable the UAC please ensure to run the installation routine as well as the ordinary executable (i.e. "Verzetteln.bat" or "Zettelkasten"-link) always with administrator's rights!
