Godaddy shared windows hosting and MySQL

Last Modified: 2013-12-14
I have created a shared Windows hosting account with GoDaddy. I also created a MySQL database and Web site. Using the same credentials I used to create the account I am unable to connect to the database with the connect string. I get the following error:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e37' [MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver][mysqld-5.0.37-log]Table 'etnyadmin.USER_LOGIN' doesn't exist.

Anyone know why?

Found the problem.

It seems that MySQL v5.0 is case sensitive. So select * from USER_LOGIN table produces a table not found error while select * from user_login works!!
Thank for all you help.

It's not that MySQL v5.0 is case sensitive. MySQL v5.0 is case sensitive with table names according to the underlying OS hosting it, because the tables has matching files created on the hard disk. Most Unix based OS have case sensitive file systems, while windows do not. So if the Mysql is hosted on Linux the table names are case sensitive. Windows on the other hand is not.
