I keep hearing how Access is lame database for web applications but I can't afford SQL Server. Should one simply blow off Access and go straight to MySQL. If so, does anyone have any advise on a quick way to get the appropriate tables set up MySQL.

I know this goes against some popular thoughts, but I disagree about Access vs. mySQL vs. Informix vs. SQL Server vs. Foxbase vs. whatever. In our ASP/VB scripting world of VP-ASP our needs are relatively simple. Any of those databases will perform just fine, given proper setup, database "normalization" and sensible programming habits. I believe the larger question for most of us using VP-ASP is how much database administration and customization do we require for a script based ecommerce package? If truly very high volumes are expected then I would believe we would move to a stand alone server running a C++ based data access method using ADO or likely custom ODBC interfaces. 99.9% of us will never be hindered by the number of open objects returned by the SQL query or theoretical user access limitations. In VP-ASP, VP-ASP is the real user of the database. Customers are session variables until the transaction is completed - and any server can handle a whole lot of session variables! My position is to focus on closing the database connection and dumping the recordset objects as quickly as possible. Sensible practice when using any database.

awdesign - please take note :

Your posts are nothing but useless ** SPAM **

You have not even offered a personal contribution to this topic.

All you've done is copy & pasted your useless SPAM.

Please don't post to this section of the forum, if you don't intend to include a worthwhile contribution with your post.

If you just plan to post useless SPAM, save that ONLY for the "Offering Services" section of the forum.

You may be trying to market your services, but the suttle, helpful, and informative approach (which you need to learn) is respected a lot more by the forum members.

Like Mark Priest, or Cam, to give 2 examples. Take a leaf out of their book. They are offering their services, but in a manner that is suttle, and they are helpful and informative to other forum members. They make personal contributions to the topics. They DON'T post useless SPAM, like you do.

There is a decent host at www.lunarpages.com that is cheap and comes with My SQL. I got it from somewhere that says it ranked 2nd cos the 1st comes with free .com domain name.

Check it out and see if it's suitable for you. The only thing I wonder is whether they offer MS SQL as an add-on.
