PHP and MS Access database

Recommended Posts

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:

[list]
[*]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 (Info[url=http://www.phpbuilder.com/columns/timuckun20001207.php3?page=1]HERE[/url])
[*]Run PHP on a Windows machine with Access installed (Info[url=http://www.phpbuilder.com/columns/timuckun20001207.php3?page=1]HERE[/url]).
[/list]

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.
