The database is an access db but all I want to do is upload it, but check first wether it is newer or not. I plan to have the email automatically sent each day but only upload it if it is newer. All I am trying to do is bypass the ftp part which I cant do.
Is there a reference on how to pull out the email from qmail? I am new to this concept. -----Original Message----- From: Jason Wong [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]] Sent: 13 December 2002 10:14 To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: Re: [PHP] Uploading changes via Email On Friday 13 December 2002 17:17, Roke, Ian wrote: > Hi there people, > > I am currently working on a database front-end for a company database and I > would like to know if it would be possible to email "access.db" to > "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" and a script would be run on it to save it over the > top of the database that is already on the server (and a few little tweaks > as well) instead of having to manually upload seeing as ftp connections are > not allowed. It is possible to send mail to an email address and have it processed by a script. It depends on your mailserver, eg with sendmail you can its alias mechanism, with qmail you can use dot-qmail files. But I'm not sure how you would process "access.db" assuming that it is a file created by MS Access. -- Jason Wong -> Gremlins Associates -> www.gremlins.biz Open Source Software Systems Integrators * Web Design & Hosting * Internet & Intranet Applications Development * /* Who is W.O.
