We provide MySQL relational databases on our unix based servers only.
In order for you to setup a database you need to inform us at firstname.lastname@example.org Please put your account name in the subject of all correspondence to email@example.com. Please include in your e-mail the following details:
- database name:
You do not need to use the same username and password as the ones you are using for your account. In fact, we encourage you to use a different username and password as you will need to have this information in your scripts. Please understand that if a particular database or username is already present on the server, then we will ask you to provide us with another username or database name.
We do not allow command line access to change the state of a file or Database. You will have to write a cgi script in either perl or use php to access the database. Here are some sample scripts in perl:
The above scripts are only examples to help get you started. We cannot support the perl DBI or php ourselves. There are plenty of resources available on the Internet that will help you in that area. Below are some links that may be helpful:
- perl DBI documentation
- php web site

Below are some converter scripts they convert your Microsoft Access databases to MySQL
These scripts DO NOT work with ACCESS 2000 you will need to convert them to Access97 files first
Microsoft Access 2000 has a new feature that is not available in earlier versions of Access. In Access 2000, you can convert an Access 2000 database back to the Access 97 file format.
For more information about converting an Access 2000 database back to Access 97, click Microsoft Access Help on the Help menu, type convert an Access 2000 database to Access 97 in the Office Assistant or the Answer Wizard, and then click Search to view the topics returned.
