    Default RE: Best database?

    The best database would be Oracle or SQL server, but these are real expensive (SQL server costs $5000 per proccesor Oracle even a lot more) So you should see what your needs are. If you have an site with a few visitors a day, Access would be suffiecient I guess. But if you&#039;ve an busy website with heavy database actions you need an more reliable database. (Access can handle around 10-15 concurrent connections)<BR><BR>Also you could look into MySQL ( I have no experience with this DB but I hear some pretty good results.<BR><BR>You could take an subscription with an ISP with an (shared) SQL server, the monthly costs are higher, but you don&#039;t have to buy SQL server yourself.<BR><BR>Summary: 10-15 concurrent users: Access *might* be good enough, otherwise go with SQL server.
