Where is the database schema?


New member
I wanted to post this as a question in the development forum but for some reason your forum account needs to be a customer account, which I find kind of odd seeing how I want to develop something for my client who is your customer but I digress!

I'm reading through your developer docs and I can't find a schema of the XF2 DB. It mentions how to manage the schema but no way to see the current structure. Where would one go to find this?

Thank you!

Edit: I can't even reply to my own thread, geez louise!

Your client can provide the license files and/or access to their installation, which will allow you to see the schema and code.

They can also add you as one of their forum users which will allow you to post in customer forums.
