FrontPage and Databases

What is involved in using Frontpage2000 to publish and serve an Access 2000 database on a linux apache server.  Do i need any scripts, if so where can i get some.
etc etc.

I would really like a step by step guide as to how to place my access database online.

You have to use a script language (PHP / Perl etc.)

If you use Perl you have to install 2 CPAN libs

DBD.pm
DBI::ODBC.pm

Both found in cpan.org

If both are installed correct you can access the Access DB via SQL language

How To is found in the modul

that is the answer to your question

I would prefer another solution

If it is a server under your control install for example Mysql to the system and create an odbc connection to the Mysql DB

Then you can edit the Mysql DB using Access and access over the web is easy by using DBD and DBI:MYSQL Modul. Demo Scripts are found under mysql.com
