    Well, I am thinking of expanding my skills into PHP/MySQL, you peole don't seem to going away

    Just wondering if I develop on my W2K PC, if I can easily migrate that to a Linux/Unix? Are there differences? Do you upload MySQL files like Access or mount/dismount/migrate like SQL Server and Oracle?

    Thanks

    I'm no expert, but if you use a package like NuSphere that comes with PHPmyAdmin, then you will have NO problem porting to another OS.

    Simply use PHPMyAdmin on your local box to give you the mySQL commands, then paste them into PHPMyAdmin on the remote server.

    You can simply create a dump of your db and then move it and recreate it from that dump.

    MySQL is more like MS SQL than Access.

    I haven't run into portability problems yet - as long as you keep things like directory paths in a variable in a config file so you can change them from windows format to linux format when you move the code across it should work fine. There are a few linux specific functions such as crypt() but other than that the two versions are completely compatible.
