Hello

I need to know what do I have to do to connect using PHP to MS Access database. The web server is on linux (no GUI) the MS Access database is on different server - novell.
I would like to connect by ODBC. Is there ODBC driver for linux to MS Access :)?  I don't know what driver to install - from where do I get one. Can someone help me?

Hi!
There is a MS Access ODBC driver for linux available at http://www.unixodbc.org/

This is commercial software and it'll cost you about 270 british pounds.
