ISP has no remote access on connecting to MySQL database. Now what?

Malte is right. Also, ISP's more often don't than do allow remote database access. Here's an example (but no downloads) of a product I made for a customer to cope with this problem: It all works through PHP. If you have RevServer, you could use iRev instead of PHP. I use a PHP script that handles the $_POST array and a LiveCode script that sends multi-part form data to the server.

Best regards,
