External Databases

Acrolinx stores terminology, analytics, and reporting data in databases. The Acrolinx Core Platform, the Terminology Manager, analytics, and the reporting database each come with a default database. You need to connect Acrolinx to a database other than the freely distributed database formats. You might also want to update or back up your data.
