Hello Andy and Amy,


Do I know you? We only provide support to customers of Advantagecom on this forum, but if you're someone I know personally I might be willing to help on my own time by email or phone.

Choose MS Access Driver if you're going to us MS Access. I really don't know a whole lot about Microsoft Windows servers in a hosting environment, so that is only an educated guess. We use Linux and FreeBSD exclusively here.

I know quite a bit about Plesk for Linux and FreeBSD, but Plesk for Windows is a completely different beast. About all they share in common is the name "Plesk" and similar icons, though most functionality and configuration boxes are completely different.

You're welcome to buy an account from Advantagecom and we can get you some expert help.

Can Plesk for Linux beable to run an Access DB?

If so I may conceder moving here. I am hosting at Rackforce for about a month now.
I chose them becouse they said they'd offer training in Plesk, but the program is no longer offerd.

No. Plesk for Linux can use MySQL or PostGres. Our tech support staff can give you guidance on how to get data into MySQL. Depending on how much data you have, you could key by hand or use a utility to export and convert the data. We also offer services in which we'd can do this for you for $75 an hour if you're running short on time or patience for doing it yourself.

As far as shopping carts, osCommerce is what we usually recommend to our customers and it is included for free with any Plesk based account we sell. It is very easy to setup and use.

You would still be able to use FrontPage to publish your site, but ASP is not supported since it is a Microsoft only technology.
