I have the following connection string I was using in a class project:
$conn = new COM("ADODB.Connection") or die("Cannot start ADO");
$connString= "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=e:\\ectserver\\XXXX\\Database\\royalPainSite.mdb";
$conn->Open($connString);

This worked as expected. I am now transferring my site from the school servers to GoDaddy and there are issues with the DNS, username and password which I didn't have to deal with previously.

Anyone have experience with this? suggestions?

Answered in your other question.  I don't think you will get PHP and MS Access working on commercial hosting.  You should consider switching to MySQL or even MS SQL.
