    Getting more into Web based DBs I am finding many ISPs that don&#039;t support SQL7/2000 although a lot support MySQL.<BR>Also many Clients don&#039;t want to pay the $80-$150/mnth to the ISP to provide an SQL7/2000 DB and push towards the free Access or MySQL<BR><BR>Can anyone comment on MySQL reliability/performance?<BR><BR>What tools are required to configure a MYSQL DB?<BR><BR>Thanks,<BR><BR>Doug

    MySQL is very reliable. It&#039;s performance runs from about the same as Access to maybe 3 or 4 times better, depending on what you are doing.<BR><BR>Your ISP will have to configure your MySQL DB to get you started. After that, you can just connect to it and do CREATE TABLE, etc., all from ASP if you want.<BR><BR>There&#039;s a couple of pretty good GUI-based programs for working with MySQL, but I dunno if they can be used on an ISP-based system.<BR><BR>You might want to create the DB on your local machine and then, when it works, transfer it to the ISP and ask them to "start it up" for you.<BR><BR>MySQL is a true server-based system (like SQL Server, Oracle, etc.) not just a DLL like Access.<BR><BR>
