SQL server 2019 compatibility


We want to upgrade our SQL server to 2019 in place. As we read here there is no official statement regarding the compatability of "SQL server 2019"

Did anyone just tried it? I guess it should work?

I think you have to ask this to Episerver Support because they can give you the best answer.

Well I guess asking it here makes it more public. Best would be that the system-requirements page is updated ;)

Hi Holden, the Episerver system requirements page should be updated when ever there are changes to the supported OS/SQL/.NET Framework/Visual Studio versions.

So as the SQL 2019 is not currently listed it means it is not officially supported by Episerver.

But in theory you could use SQL Server 2019 and set the database compatibility level to 140 (SQL Server 2017) and it should just work. Most likely it would also work with mode 150 (SQL Server 2019) but as said it is NOT currently officially supported ;-)

Quan Mai might have insights to this support, is it coming anytime soon etc. Going to ping him if he could give us an answer here.

We are in the process of validating SQL server 2019 so not officially supported yet, but we don't anticipate any problems so we should be able to add it to the supported versions soon.
