You can configure an ODBC connexion to your MySql Database.

To configure ODBC, go to Administration Tools -> Data Source (ODBC)
Add a new system datasource.

After, just make a connection to the ODBC by using Sql datasource object

You can also directly enter the connection chain in the Sql Datasource object:

DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver}; SERVER=localhost; DATABASE=Your_Mysql_DB; UID=mysql_username;PASSWORD=mysql_password; OPTION=3
