    HI,

    I am planning to set up an online database for a project at college. I have the following skills:

    Advanced Visual Basic programming knowledge
    Advanced HTML knowledge
    Knowledge of Microsoft Access
    Some Perl knowledge (from installing cgi's etc...)

    I have access to a Unix server

    got any suggestions on how to do it ?

    With your skills you would *really* be much better of on a IIS server running ASP and access, since ASP is (essentially) a subset of Visual Basics...

    I do not thing you can run ASP on a unix server... However, there are small programs out there that will convert your ASP code to php3

    In very simple terms, php is the UNIX version of ASP. Both are aerver side scripting technologies, also known as Hypertext Pre-Processors.

    You can think of them as CGI scripts build right into your HTML code.

    There are numerous resources on the new for learning both ASP and php. Several of the forum members run sites that have articles describing ASP and php.

    I have found a place to host ASP pages and host a domain for free. So I think I'll be learning ASP, is there any downloadable tutorials on the net? - not all the complicated stuff yet just things like including other pages into one page (like SSI)

    Cheers

    Take a look at http://www.articlecentral.com/ which is run by one of the people who partisipate in this forum.

    Also, http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/ is completely devoted to ASP and has more articles that you could ever read.
    http://www.asp101.com have some intro articles and *a lot* of links to other ASP sites.
    http://www.haneng.com has a nice looking ASP site.
