Can I use Access on Dreamhost

software development

#1

I’m asking on behalf of our programmer (I’m not a database person). She would like to use an Access database. Can that be done on Dreamhost?

Thank you for any feedback.

As far as I know access will not run under linux/unix based servers. You would need a windows server. I am sure, with some effort, you could pull data from an access db that was on a windows server but no, access itself would not run on DH.

We do have MySQL, though, which can do pretty much anything Access can do except better. :slight_smile:

Not run it but use to export data to.
