Why would you need a database at all for only chat application? As somekind of a log?
Instead of that, you can simply use file (write to file).
Anyway, if you have decided to use db, it can only be on server side. But I am not really sure why you need db at all? If you explain why you need it, I can give you further information.

btw, what method have you taken for server-client?
Iam doing almost the same application, andI choose TpcListener and TcpClient (using ip). And I have problems. I am just wondering what type of connection have you taken!?
