    Can anybody tell me where shall I upload *.mdb files?

    I have uploaded it into httpdocs folder and it showing some Internal Server error.

    So how can I give permission for this through a single command. Coz we have around 800 sites and it is not possible to give permissions manually to all these sites..

    Please help

    Tell all your users to place MDB files in a directory they create in the httpdocs.
    Then, they own the directory and have full permissions to CRUD (create, read, update and delete).

    not secured

    *.mdb should not be under httpdocs for security reasons.
    if the user will browse to:
    he will download the file with all the information in it.

    in order to secure this, the directory should be protected, or in a directory that is not below httpdocs, but in the same level
    like /private (though i don't know if the asp process have privilege to access this folder, the user may create a seperate directory n his root and put there his mdb file, that way it can be accessed only by ftp/asp process)
