Where should I upload my Access database files?

The information in this article applies to :

  • Microsoft Access


  • For account set up after 8/25/2003, you should see a directory named "_database" under your webroot. The _database directory is configured with enhanced security which disallow direct download from a web browser.  For security reason, all MS Access database files (*.mdb) should be uploaded to this directory.

    Do not place any other files (e.g., html, asp...etc.) in this folder.

    If you do not have the _database directory within your webroot, please create a support ticket.  We can create one for you.
