Re: Installing LedgerSMB into a schema?

Just a quick note on this before I address your previous post.

Right now there seems to be some thought that moving LSMB into a
separate schema makes sense.  I am all for this idea.  However, I am
not sure it makes sense for multi-company setups to have companies as
schemas in part because it would prevent us from securely breaking the
reporting functionality into its own schema.

Also, in a case like that, it would prevent us from really leveraging
the use of schemas to create interop between products as you are
trying to do in a secure fashion.  Or at least it would make that a
great deal harder.

Just some thoughts.

Best Wishes,

I have the possibility of multi-company setups but I also have the means
to create as many dbs as I want/need.  Like I mentioned previously, not
all hosting solutions offer the flexibility that mine does.
