Sadly, no, Base is extremely flaky, and doesn't seem to have many
users. Chicken and egg.
Is there a possibility of using a different data type, or of also
running mysql/mariadb? I have reasonable success with data access using
mysql, the part I have major trouble with is report writing, which
stopped altogether for a couple of weeks recently. I had to resort to
writing a php report generator for the specific one I needed quickly.
Has this ever worked for you?
