My web hotel is using MySQL (exclusively) - but the db I just downloaded ('snitz_forums_2000') is labeled 'Microsoft Access-program'.

Not a very bright question - but...what do I do??

Regards,
Hans

Indeed - but I surmise you are hinting that I didn't read it properly?

It is this NOTE I feel uncertain about :
"Access databases can only be used on a Windows Server. You will need to use a MySQL or MS SQL database if you are on a Unix Server."
- but after rereading I suppose the solution is to 'uncomment' the appropriate connection string!(?)

Hans

You can use MySQL or SQL Server on Windows servers. Yes, just use the appropriate connection string.

Thanks - however, the web server shows the whereami.asp 'raw'; I suppose that means the server isn't properly configured for asp?

- but I believe the server in question is a Unix one!

If it is Unix, better use a php based forum, instead of Snitz.

- OK(!)
The reason I chose Snitz was that I used it some years ago for a different user clientele - I still have the db (on another web server); would it be feasible to establish a new forum on same db (the original forum is no longer in use)??

Hans

Same BD? I supposed with some cleanup before? But how is it Snitz, if the server is Linux? It runs SunOne ASP?

- well, I'm getting (a little) confused now!: As I wrote, the 'defunct' Snitz was running on another web server - but I just had a quick glance at it, and to my surprise it appeared to be Unix based, as well!?

I need some sleep now - will have a word with my ISP tomorrow

Regards,
Hans

Snitz can be used on nix servers if they have SunOne ASP. Don't think new version have been tested with it.
