Tell Me What You Think

Tuesday, November 16, 2004

It took me a bit longer than I initially thought, but you can post comments now.

Until now, my web site didn't use a database. At the time I decided that it was more important to just get my web site online than to have it all running perfectly. As it turns out, I was right. Nevertheless, a database is a necessity if you want to enable commenting.

When I tried to bring the update online, it turned out my web hosting package did not include a MySQL-database, only an Access-database. I don't have a license for Microsoft Access, so I can't use it. Even if I did have a license, I don't like Access very much and that's putting it mildly. Fortunately, my web host set up a MySQL-database for me in about thirty minutes and the added expense is negligible.
