I want to have a simple online database (perhaps Access) updated by internet users. What are the pros and cons of using CGI to do this? Can CGI be used to this? Would Delphi be appropriate to write the cgi file?
Also, if the online database is hosted at an ISP, is it possible to download all record changes to the offline, onsite database - perhaps once or twice a day? Is this a feasible way to do it? How is it usually done (architecture wise - where does the online database typically live).
Alot of help I know...will be greatly appreciated,
