Dear EE Experts,

We would like to ask for tech support that will help us resolve to run PHP pages on a Windows 7 platform and will pass via IIS. If IIS is not necessary, please advise...
We need to save the php specially its access db on the same location where the ASP files are located... Because it would be much more complicated if we keep those php file & the db on a separate drive location...
The reason is, our Upload page is written in PHP language, connect to an Access db, that most of the ASP pages use the same db to pull out information & show it.

We're having problem with the connection (connect.php) of our upload.php to the db...

Thank you & hope to hear soon...

@logudotcom: The PHP can run, but how to resolve with its db connection? The items on the drop-down (that is pulled-out from an MS Access db) is not showing. But the PHP page is showing...
Kindly advise what would be the problem & how to resolve it...

Thank you!

Hope to hear again soon...
