.net/mysql would be my suggestion... that way you can build on your asp knowledge and get a really fast db backend. Love the map thing by the way, cheers, Ant. -----Original Message----- From: thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org]On Behalf Of Matt MacLeod Sent: 17 October 2002 10:42 To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] Technology change -- [ Picked text/plain from multipart/alternative ] Hi, I work for a company with a site at www.bigbarn.co.uk. The website has a mapping function whereby the user enters their postcode/zipcode and are presented with a map of their area with icons to display various bits of information. At the moment the site is built with ASP and an Access database. Originally this was fine - traffic was low and the database held a relatively small amount of data. Now, however, the site is building, traffic is increasing and I am aware that Access is no longer suitable for the job. I have been thinking about changing the site to a php/mysql backend but I am relatively unsure about the pros and cons of this. Would any other technology be suitable eg: ColdFusion? Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated!
