I have a MSSQL Server 2008 being used by another system which require nested triggers be turned off. According to the vendor this is not default SQL installation. Can anyone tell me whether Moodle requires nested triggers to be turned on? I need to to find out whether I can use the same MSSQL Server 2008 for my Moodle upgrade.
I searched for "nested triggers" in this forum with no luck.
Secondly, the server collation is not UTF8. Would it help improve performance if the database collation is set to UTF8? Would Moodle work in such setting cause I read something about if the server and database are of different collation, temp db cannot be used.
Thanks in advanced for your help!
p.s. I checked 2.8's database requirement again just now to find that "First of all, minimum required version of MSSQL has been stabilised to MSSQL 2005 (v.9)." (https://docs.moodle.org/28/en/Installing_MSSQL_for_PHP.)
Is that new? I clearly recall MSSQL requirement for 2.7 and up is 2008.
