Well lads this might be a stupid question but the situation is the following. A customer wants to maintain an ms access db coz that's what he can work with, while enabling ppl from the company to access db data through a browser interface, all this using a linux web host with apache. I am totally confused here so excuse me if I'm being stupid, but here's what goes through my mind:
if he has ms access on his pc, can i connect to it with php using the odbc functions? or is it a total nonsense..
let's say he goes offline leaving the browser-frontend for db manipulation dead as i imagine. Is it possible instead of the first solution to import an access db into a mysql db on the webhost server and automatize this everytime he updates his ms db?
i was also wondering, if one could maybe use vmware to have the Access db on the webhosting server and what would all that involve?
thanks for your patience :-)))
