The [[Database| MusicBrainz Database]] is an SQL database that contains all the information about [[Artist|artists]], [[Release|releases]], [[Track|tracks]], [[Advanced Relationships]] between them, but also the MusicBrainz users ([[Editor|editors]]) and the changes they entered into the database ([[Edit Type|edits]]). MusicBrainz currently uses PostgreSQL as its underlying database software.
The database can be [[Database Download|downloaded]] from the MusicBrainz website. There are a few guides available on how to setup your own copy of the database, and import the data:
* [[Database Installation]]
* [[Database Installation/Mac OS X Panther|Installation on Mac OS X Panther]]
* [[Debian VMWare Database]]
* [https://github.com/lalinsky/mbslave Alternative setup using a Python-based tool (including replication)]
Once you've got the database running, you might want to setup a working [[Server Development|MusicBrainz Server]] as well.
It is also possible to setup a mirror using MySQL: see [[MusicBrainz MySQL]].
