Where is the database folder for MS-Access database?

'db' folder created along with the 'www' or 'wwwroot' folder is the recommended folder for .mdb file placements. Reasons why we recommend it are:

1. Security

Folder 'db' is out of the public area of your website. Any content you place inside the 'db' folder is not accessible via http protocol to the web surfer.

2. Read/Write Access

System users have complete read-write access of the 'db' folder, while the other folders like 'www' and folders inside that; are read-only folder.

3. ODBC DSN Creation

You can create DSN via HELM control panel for the .mdb files placed inside the folder 'db' and it's sub-folder.
