By default, the Maestro Project Server is pre-configured with an embedded version of the Apache Derby database. Maestro uses two databases: one for user account information and one for Build Management (builds), which stores information about your projects and builds.

To use a different database than the default, you would generally perform the following steps:
Take note of the warning on the page saying:
Changing the database settings will switch to the new database, not move your existing data. If the new database does not exist, you will be prompted to import data on startup. You should backup the current database before making any changes.
Note: Changing the database settings logs you out and restarts Maestro. It might take some time for the application to restart.
