Database question

Why not try using a three-tier architecture? Apache, PHP and MySQL? That way
the database access is still local and web browsers could also access the
data. You could use XML for the Apache-to-Rev return data, perhaps.

Just an idea.

Thank you Tuviah. It looks like I'll be switching my ISP for the second time
this year. Just out of curiosity, is it feasible to set up MYSQL in such a
way as to have it accessed by remote clients (like Rev) and having
permissions granted for every client (thus according to some ISP's, opening
doors to hackers), or was MYSQL designed more for being accessed locally?
I'm just trying to figure out the workflow, whether the Rev client should
access the data remotely or communicate with a local version of itself
already on the server?
