I have been asked to maintain a PHP site hosted on NT/IIS, and have
only an Apache/RH linux box to do test and development for it.

So far it would be a no-brainer, being PHP as portable as is.

The problem is that on the real server PHP should read and write an
Access database via ODBC, and, for reasons not worth discussing here, I have no
possibility to change this in the foreseable future.

On the other hand, I really don't want to put online untested pages,
cannot afford buying another NT/IIS box just for this purpose, and
even less dual booting all the time, because of other Linux only
projects I can't stop. 

The question, then, is if I can copy the Access database files on my
Linux box and access them via PHP/ODBC/Apache on my PC to test completely my
pages before upload: is this possible? How?

Any other solution (like converting the access DB to Mysql or
something, in such a way that if the PHP code works on MySQL on my box it will also
work for sure on Access on the IIS server) is extremely welcome!!

        Thanks a lot in advance,
