Post your question to a community of 470,815 developers. It's quick & easy.


I need to be able to access (read and write) an older database (still
in production use) that uses dbf files (clipper-style). The php
manual says not to use the dbf functions for a production system -
corruption can occur.

Is it safe to talk to these DBs through ODBC? The machine is running
winXP, apache, and php, and so far, I have no problems getting data
from the DB files thru ODBC, but I'm a bit leery about writing...
Don't want to f' anything up.

If this isn't safe, is there a better route?

This may be of your interest, look at ODBC-DSN Less :-

I haven't got time to try it out. Plz let me know if you successfully do
php+dbf because I am interested to do it too.
