Can I set up an Access [ADO] database on web space, and use it as my application database ?
Posted on 2005-03-31
Okay, I may be being really daft here, but I have written an application for a client, which uses an ADO Access database.
Each workstation in his office then has a copy of the application, which they can use to log into the database (which sits on one of the workstations, as it is a peer to peer network) and work simultaneously.
They are soon to move offices and he has asked whether it would be possible to be able to access the database when they are (a) at home, (b) at client sites and (c) in the office.
It stirkes me that I should be able to plonk the MDB file in some webspace, and access it over the web. Am I being too adventurous ?
The application is written in Delphi 7 Professional.
