MySQL :o(

Hi, I'm trying to connect to my mySQL server through, but no matter what I do, I keep getting the same error:

ERROR [IM002] [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified
I've tried installing everything over and over again, and I've used alle kinds of tutorials. But nothing is working.
Here's the code I using on my page:
<%@ Page Language="c#" ContentType="text/html" ResponseEncoding="iso-8859-1" %>
<%@ Import namespace = "System.Data"%>
<%@ Import namespace = "System.Data.Odbc"%>
<script language="C#" runat="server">

string mySQLConnStr = "driver={MySQL};";
mySQLConnStr = mySQLConnStr + "server=localhost;";
mySQLConnStr = mySQLConnStr + "uid=root;";
mySQLConnStr = mySQLConnStr + "pwd=;";
mySQLConnStr = mySQLConnStr + "database=mysql;";
mySQLConnStr = mySQLConnStr + "OPTION=17923";

OdbcConnection myConnection = new OdbcConnection
string SQL = "select * from user";
OdbcDataAdapter myCommand = new OdbcDataAdapter(SQL,
DataSet ds = new DataSet();
myCommand.Fill(ds, "user");

MAKE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN your "Driver={}" string is CORRECT.

To check go to:
Control Panel > Admin Tools > Data Sources (ODBC) > [Tab] Drivers
Scroll down until you see the MySQL driver, and see what the NAME is. Use that EXACT name in your string.
If you can't find it, your page won't work, you need to install the MyODBC drivers...if you're using MyODBC 3.51 your string should look like:

DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver}

If it's localhost, don't bother adding the "server=" automatically assumes that. And what is the "option" for? Don't use it unless you need it
:) Hope that helped.

Another option is to get the CoreLab.MySql.dll from Core Labs ...

1. Install the driver
2. Add it to Web Matrix
3. Create a "bin" directory in you web folder

i've tried downloading and installing the MDAC but to no avail.

Hi Shaheed,

The ODBC provider is not part of MDAC, which is COM-based ADO.
You can get the provider here.

Okay, how do you know you're not getting the namespace? What development tools are you using? What code are you trying to write?

You need to reference the Microsoft.ODBC.Data namespace just like the other namespace references.  Even if the DLL's have been added to the gac, you have to do this reference.  I keep forgetting myself.

Hi Guys I've been thinking (bad move for this time of day) would it be possible to run DNN from a win2K server then connect to MySQL running on a RaQ2 server? If this were possible how would you go about setting this up? reason for asking is I have a RaQ2 and rather than thinking about MSSQL licensing thought this might be a better option. Any thoughts? Pat MySQL is MySQL regardless of the host. Just create your DB on your Sun box and alter your DNN connection string to point at that box/port/DB...

Greetings, I'm a webserver newbie, my experience to date has been strictly pc support and network administration. We're in the process of exploring Apache (currently running Netware 6 and NCS) as a replacement for our aging IIS server. I've been asked if MySQL is available. I'm pretty sure it is as I've seen posts related to it but I've got no idea where to get it or what to do once I have it. Can anyone point me in the right direction, especially where training/manuals/getting started advice is concerned? Thanks, Travis -- Travis Montgomer...
