I was wondering whether or not an Access database can exist on a Linux server or not?

I need to create a web page which will display results of database table using PHP. If Access database can not exist on a Linux server, what can? (Easiest possible solution!)

The most you'll be able to accomplish would probably be:

  • Import your Access database to another Linux-compatible database system, like MySQL or similar
  • Access your Access database from a Windows machine using your Linux machine (InfoHERE)
  • Run PHP on a Windows machine with Access installed (InfoHERE).

Unless you have some specific reason for making Access work with a Linux webserver, I would say dump Access and use MySQL or something similar.
