    Unanswered: I want to use Access Database for a Subscription based web site

    Hello,

    I am creating a Subscription based web site. It's in ASP with Access Database. However, many online posts/reviews recommand NOT to use Access Database as it's primary use only for desktop applications not server side.

    Some of the posts mentioned that Access can't handle more than 255 users accessing at the same time. I am guessing, the web site i am creating, will going to have only 20-50 users at one time. If it's out grow, i can always move to MSSQL Server.

    So the question is, what do you guys recommand? Should i use Access Database or not? I am very comfortable working with ASP with Access Database. I am creating this web site since 3 weeks and everything has been working very smooth as of now.

    Please response.

    Thanks

    AK

    For a mark 1 version you could use msacess as the backend change that feild to a memo field that fix that problem

    If you can jump to MsSQL then just jump in feet first and see what happen lol
    hope this help
