Is anyone using MySQL and ASP together? I really need to move off Access
and on to a real SQL Server and like the fact that MySQL is available, for
my purpose, at no charge. But I hate the idea of having to learn a new
database and a new language (PHP) at the same time; even though I'm sure
CodeCharge would take the pain out of a transition like this.

I would appreciate any input that you might have on this subject.


Thanks In Advance;

Paul

What you really need is ASP on UNIX hosting.
Unless you can find NT host with MySQL.
I have not seen one yet.
Most MySQL comes hosted on UNIX & UNIX does not support ASP.
Unless you can find one that support ChiliSoft ASP.
Maybe you can browse www.chilisoft.com to see if they publish some hosting
service with that combo.
See posting http://codecharge.com/forum/viewthread.php?mid=91 on ChiliSoft
error.
Good luck.

I'm my own ISP Roger. I manage the county's intranet site. Right now I'm
on an NT machine using IIS 5.0. I can install PHP if thats going to be a
requirement but if the MySQL ODBC Driver is stable, which I've read some
less than encouraging reports about, ASP and MySQL is quite doable. If I
have to look in another direction for tapping MySQL then, again from what
I've read, PHP would be the way to go. I'm not really up for adding UNIX
and Apache and whatever else, to my list of educational ventures.

I do appreciate your input. Thank you;

Paul

Thanks Alexey have you worked with MySQL and the MyODBC? Is it a stable
driver? I've read some news group messages that were less than
complimentary about MyODBC and was wonder if these were the exception or is
it a problem driver?

I appreciate your input;
