View Full Version : Help with PWS and the like please!

18 Dec 2006, 02:59 PM
Hi, new to the forums!

Right now, I'm trying to make a simple website that links and exchanges data with a simple database. I've got a background in HTML and am finding it easy to use ASP and understant ADO etc.

Using ADO I should be able to connect to a .mdb database, but I can't get a PWS to work to be able to start testing code etc. I've tried apache but can't configure it properly, despite trying to follow a couple of guides, and MS IIS doesn't want to display my asp pages properly, which makes me wonder if I've botched the code (despite it being practically identical to the tutorial) or whether the database isn't compatible for some reason?

Any links to decent guides or software that may be worth investigating would be greatly appreciated!!
