    VB.net and PHP - One database?


    Is it possible or how can a ONE database is made use by two system with the same features but different language? - VB.net and PHP programming language?

    Does the database can be updated by both system? real time?
    How's retrieving of data from both system?
    Don't they occur error in viewing? or in data sharing?

    I just want to clear my mind. Beginner here.

    Comments are all appreciated.

    Sure. All the popular database systems are supported by all the popular programming languages, though you may need an extension or drivers to talk to it.

    Why would there be any problems? The database doesn't care what kind of software is accessing it.

    Depends which language and what database you're using. Try Google for some easy answers.
