Our customer use this type of connection to connect to an Access DB from a Website


is there a limit to connect to databases with this method, if so: how can we limit this (especially in shared hosting enviroments)?

thanks in advance for your trouble

what do you wanna limit?
Yeah, like Mikal613 said, what do you want to limit??
The computers that can access the db?

not the computers the users or better say:

if a user is creating a connection (and has a ODBC Connection limit from the hosting Software which we use for our shared hosting customers) he shoud not be able to add new connection by this way, i'm not shure if he is able to do that at the moment or not

There are lots of ways to solve your problem.

Are you limiting from the client side or the server side?

If from the client side you can load the connection count into a system variable and write your script to check the system variable (in case the user try to load another client server connection in excess of the limit).

If from the server side it is sorta the same thing except a little trickier for the layman.
