MS access db not working


Added my MS access DB to wwwroot folder. tried accessing from code as ‘C:\home\site\wwwroot\LauraStock.mdb’. But getting file not found error. Please help!


I don’t think that Gear Host supports reading Access databases from your code. That would require special permissions and libraries. Here is a link to how to read the hosted MSSQL:


We do support access database connections. If you are still having issues please open a support ticket so our admins can take a look into this.


Is there a FAQ or other information on connecting to an Access DB? I was told a while back that Gearhost no longer supported this. Thanks!
