I am developing a website on an IIS server that is not allowing any server side tools. I would like to be able to connect to a database. Most preferable is to keep every thing on this IIS server. Would be nice to have an access database sitting in a directory somewhere on the web server, but don't believe it is possible due to no server-side.
I have another server running apache, php, and mysql I could connect to if the above is not possible. If using this alternate route, how would I connect to the remote server to execute SQL queries?
