I'm in the process of learning PHP and it's going pretty well. I already have experience with languages like C so I find the transition fairly natural.
However, for a project I have to do over this year I am unable to use a MySQL database to create a website. I've been restricted to Access which is a kick in the teeth for me because I've heard nothing but bad things when working with PHP and Access. I'm hoping to get it changed to Oracle.
For a relative PHP newbie, how hard do you think it'll be to get into using PHP and Access or PHP and Oracle, considering next to every help I can find on the Internet is centred on PHP and MySQL?
