Troubleshooting

Choosing the Best Database

Q1:Most of HTML and design is front-end. Backend technologies are unfamiliar terrain. How on earth can I make the best decisions when choosing the best database solutions for my needs?
A1: If you're not a programmer or database specialist, server and database technologies can indeed seem overwhelming. I know they do to me! They are areas of specialization in Web design that require specific expertise.

The best bet is to do research and consult with your ISP or systems administrator. Seek out knowledge and either educate yourself or work with people who are more familiar with database technologies. Listservs and newsgroups are often wonderful resources. Depending on the applications you are using, you'll find that a variety of support is available on the application Web sites. For example, if you are using Microsoft products, check with the Microsoft Developer Network, http://msdn.microsoft.com/ for additional resources.
