I'm having trouble finding any information on how to connect to an Access database on a Linux server using PHP.

Does anyone have any information?

MSJet, which is the DB engine Access uses, is a Win32 program. It will not run on Linux. I do not believe that there is a MSJet implementation for Linux. You will have to connect to the MSJet server running on a Windows box. I donīt know whether that will work. Searching for php access database [google.de] on a search engine might turn up some helful info.
