    I'm on windows and have setup a domain with plesk. It creates the folders and I've figured out that the website goes into the httpdocs folder. Where would I put my access database ? I don't want to put it in the httpdocs because it could accedentially get overwriten when updating the site.

    Some hosts have a folder "db" in the root directory structure. Can I can create one ?

    You can put database to any place but you should check NTFS permissions on it

    We have a shared server running windows 2003 web edition.

    We have a client who is using ASP and MS Access as his DB.

    What is the procedure for installign and setting up PLESK and its domain to have access to MS Access?

    I get and install MS Office on the server first i imagine.

    Then what?

    how do i set up domains to have access to database files?

    Urgent reply requested!

    where put access database in plesk

    i don't kwon if someone find solution for access database.

    But i don't want put the database in httpdoc folder or sub folder, because if you type the good name of the database, it will ask you to download it. So it's a big hole of security.

    Someone have a solution for me ?

    Create with file manager a folder "database" in the folder "private". Put your access database in the folder.

    Set the needed rights to the "database" folder.

    The path you need for your web application:


    You can access this path only from the server. So this is a safe location.

    PS: Never install MS Office on your server.
