I have both SQL and MYSQL installed on my Media Portal server, but I don't know which one is in use by Media Portal.
Is there any way to tell?

    Open a TVServer.log file that shows the startup of the TVServer and look for:
    [2015-06-26 11:53:55,272] [Log ] [TVService] [INFO ] - Controller: Initializing TVServer
    [2015-06-26 11:53:55,272] [Log ] [TVService] [INFO ] - Controller: 1 init attempt
    [2015-06-26 11:53:55,272] [Log ] [PowerEventThread] [DEBUG] - TV service PowerEventThread message loop is running
    [2015-06-26 11:53:55,288] [Log ] [TVService] [INFO ] - C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal TV Server\gentle.config
    [2015-06-26 11:53:55,288] [Log ] [TVService] [INFO ] - Controller: using SQLServer database connection: Password
    [2015-06-26 11:53:55,288] [Log ] [TVService] [INFO ] - Controller: started at SERVER
    In this case MSSQL is used. MYSQL would show "MySQL" instead.

    Alternatively open gentle.config at C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal TV Server and check which <DefaultProvider Name> is uncommented
