    MySQL? Or Microsoft Access?

    I have Microsoft Access on my computer. I know that this is a database, but I know nothing about databases. Can Microsoft Access be used to do serverside database functions like making forums work? The reason I ask is that if it does, I want to become familar with the progarm.

    Thanks.

    Access can be used but it is significantly slower than MySQL. And once an Access database starts to get too large it starts having data corruption problems. Which using it for a forum you could run into once the forum starts to have a lot of users and posts.
