    To use an Access .MDB on a Linux Server you would need PHP and ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) drivers for the JET DBMS or Access Database. The only problem is you would then have to update the database using either HTML forms or store the database on a drive accessible to a PC with MS-Access via a network share.
