YES. First decide where the Phoenix SQL database will reside. Phoenix will install a free version of Microsoft®’s SQL Server Express 2014 on the same machine as the Phoenix, if desired, or point Phoenix at an existing installation of Microsoft®’s SQL Server (Standard or Enterprise versions 2005/2008/2016) already installed on a machine within the company network.
Next, decide where the Phoenix Service Engine component will be installed. This component must not only have direct access to the SQL Server for database management, but must also have connection-point access to each fuel site that will be managed. This can be done using a serial COM port if direct connections are required, an installed Windows modem for dial-up access or TCP/IP connectivity using the company LAN. (Due to security issues, public Internet access to fuel site controllers and tank gauges is not recommended).
Finally, because Phoenix is a Web-enabled application, the PC chosen for Phoenix installation must have Internet Information Services (IIS) enabled and must be securely managed behind a corporate firewall. Phoenix will enable IIS if needed during installation.
Note for Current Phoenix for Windows Users: After installing Phoenix SQL, there is a database migration utility that will import existing Phoenix for Windows data. Once complete, depending on how Phoenix is used, some modifications may need to be made to the imported data with respect to Accounts and their associated Cards.
