Deploying an application that stores data in the build in database
Hi, we want to deploy an application onsite on a client server (Linux). This application runs completely in memory so there is no need to use a seperate database to store data. We do watnt to store the users/usernames in the Build in database. How can we configure both the application/Deployment archive and the YAML file so that we can use the build in database to store data on the server. thanks in advance

The buildin database is not intended to be used on the production deployments. It's just a 'helper' so that Mendix can run out of the box without installing a database server.
So first suggestion: if you want to transfer data from PC to production and vice versa, never use built-in database. Personally I use the build-in database almost never (except for demo's, test projects, ..).
About the conversion: that's not possible without a complex database migration. The best thing to do is export / import or fill the data manually.
