Active Database in Frontpage 2000

I want to put an active database on my web.  One where visitors can input information - including a photo on occasions - and have that information available online for others to view and search. The end result would be a local classified ads service.
I need as much information as possible on how to do this.  I am fairing familiar with using FP2000, but have never used a database on my web.
Thank you

Yeep that help

If I understand your question right, you have no special Database at the moment.

Check out if your ISP installed a database on the webserver machine. If yes you he have to add your account to the db users that could insert and select and creates tables.

Also it is importent that he installs a script language like perl or php that you could access the db over the web.

By using perl check out if the modul dbd and dbi::"Name of the Databse" are installed.

Cause it is Unix enviroment you could not you asp and odbc connection.

Helpful is the name of the db to give a you sample how to access.

If there is no databse running, you have no chance to do it except creating a file based one and store entries in a file. But that solution isn´t a good one.

mgoergen should get those points, dude...
it's ABSOLUTELY TRUE..you're a screwed dude in a Unix environment if you want ODBC connecivity and asp support...that's really an NT thing, also M$ technology...but you can find some reasonably priced NT hosts out there...like me..
