    The only thing I know of for free is nothing like MS Access. You could try MySQL with phpMyAdmin. Its pretty easy to use and set up, not to mention very very cross-platform.

    i just installed mysql, wasn't sure if i already had it. I guess I just have to download PHP MyAdmin to manage it now.

    OpenOffice (and NeoOffice, if you want native) have Base, which is a database application in the vein of Access, including forms, reports, etc.

    Hmmm.... I thought that the Apache with OsX came with php installed, guess not since its not rendering your pages. I use it on Linux, but my guess would be that there is either a native way to install it, or use darwinports. I will dig around and see what I can find.

    Found it. It is installed by default. You have to go into /etc/httpd/httpd.conf and uncomment the line that says to load the php module. There are actually two lines that are commented by default that you need to uncomment. :headphone

    [edit] here is the code
    Code:
    redqueen:/etc/httpd lifeafter2am$ cat httpd.conf | grep "php"
    #LoadModule php4_module        libexec/httpd/libphp4.so
    #AddModule mod_php4.c
    <IfModule mod_php4.c>
        # If php is turned on, we repsect .php and .phps files.
        AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
        AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps
        # Since most users will want index.php to work we
        # also automatically enable index.php
            DirectoryIndex index.html index.php
    [/edit]
