Our Windows Classic Hosting accounts let you set up Access database support. Using the Hosting Control Panel, you can automatically create an “access_db” directory where you can upload your access database files.
To Set up an Access Database for Your website
- Log in to your HMA Host account.
- Click Web Hosting.
- Next to the hosting account you want to use, click Manage.
- In the Databases section of the Hosting Control Panel, click the Access icon.
- Click Enable Access Support. This creates a private directory in your hosting directory called “access_db.” This directory will already have the appropriate database permissions set.
Once you enable Access database support by creating this directory, upload your Access database file to the “access_db” directory. The permissions on this directory allow anonymous Web users to read and write to the Access database through your scripts, but they cannot download your database.
