My turn to chime in on this one...

I have been using ASP/MySQL on a Windows AND Linux box without any issues.
Yes, that's right, ASP, with the right 3rd party software, can even run on
Linux. (Don't ask Why??, just note that it can be done!)

As long as you create a system DSN (IMOH, the easiest way to go) to connect
to your MySQL databases (you have to use the MyODBC 3.51 driver), you won't
have any problems coding ASP with MySQL as your backend. You can use the MS
Jet to connect, however it puts another layer of complexity into the mix.

Just another option...

A setup of ASP/MySQL could be a right option for you if you already know
ASP. I'm not sure if it's possible though (using ODBC ?).
