It is possible, but not supported. And be arware, that database systems
do not like to get their database files rip off during work (neither big
systems like Oracle or MySQL nor small ones like sqlite).

IF you have a reliable and fast NFS it is working (i had it running for
more than four years). But as soon as you want to use this via wireless
forget it. Wireless has way to high latency. What takes seconds on wired
network takes minutes on wireless regarding digikam. Therefore i have my
digikam DB on my local host (but sync it on logout to the server - to
get a central backup).
