    Hi Himasnhu,

    General rule I follow is SQL CE is not suitable for production Umbraco sites. Useful for a quick spin up of an Umbraco instance to test something but use SQL Express / Full SQL for production - this means it's usually easier just to start a new project off with SQL Express.

    If you've already started dev in CE it's possible to migrate - some google searching will bring up the solution.

    If there's anyone out there that does use CE for production I'd be happy to be proved wrong!

    Steve

    SQLCE is a lot slower (but luckily, that only shows in the backoffice), and somehow prone to errors by corruption. I wouldn't use it for anything bigger than "your moms website".

    Thanks Kottal ...

    So, should we consider that SQL Express /Server Installation of umbraco is best for website design?
