  • Practical to Communciate with Remote Access DB?

    I have seen threads here saying that it is technically possible to communicate from a linux based site using php with a remote server access database under windows server. For instance, say there is a corporate database on a server on the other side of the country which is an access database under windows server and the site is on a linux server -- is it at all practical to communicate with that access database to do user and password checks before allowing access to restricted portions of the php driven site?

    Hi yes it can be done but normally requires a commercial application of some sort .. google ads below saved me googling for a sample! http://www.openlinksw.com/ there are others as well , hopefully some open source versions somewhere ?

    Parhaps an easier method (also without the security issue of allowing remote connections to your accessDB) is just to mirror the access DB authentication table to your online database?

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)

      Thanks very much... By 'mirror', you mean copy the table over periodically?
