[thelist] converting site from asp/Access to asp/MySQL

Hmm - if it's a Windows host offering ASP, then it should have Jet OLEDB Provider installed, and you just copy up your mdb file. You'd ask the host to remove read permissions in IIS so that people can't get your mdb file.

Alternatively, if this is a *Nix host offering ASP, then you'll probably need to look at conversion, but that's a pretty odd combination.
