    Default Access versus SQL

    Hi,<BR><BR>Just a query as to when one should use a SQL database instead of an Access one. If there isn&#039;t too much data being stored is Access sufficient? What other benefits can I get from SQL.<BR><BR>Thanks in advance.

    Default RE: Access versus SQL

    Access is best used for small trafic sites.<BR>Don&#039;t run all your site content from it! <BR><BR>I mainly use it for polls, email lists etc.<BR>It&#039;s limited to around 20-30 connections at one time.<BR><BR>SQL however, can handle as many connections as the hardware supports... eg lots!<BR><BR>If you can&#039;t afford SQL hosting why not try a MySQL & PHP setup..<BR><BR>
