    Microsoft Access vs MySql

    Hi everybody,

    I am a newbie in programming and i am not sure my question makes sense.

    Someone asked me if it's possible to link Microsoft Access to a php script where info in Access would be available on the internet. I thought it could be possible through a link Access-mySql then php but somebody told me There si no need to use mySQL because Access and mySQL are two server sided languages so i don't need both of them. He told me that i should connect my Access file directly to php to put it live on the net.

    What do you think? does it makes sense?

    Thanks

    hi,

    Yes u can have PHP connect to a Access database on a windows based server

    Let me just clear a few things up...

    PHP, ASP, ASP.net, Coldfusion, JSP etc are all server side languages

    mySQL, msSQL, oracle etc are all different types of database servers

    Access is a database that is self contained and requires no server to operate, just a windows OS.

    U can use any of the server side language to connect to the databases.

    Hope this helps clear things up
