MySQL and ASP .NET membership (site admin) Problem

i'm including my webconfig file for this question. when i try to test my provider (any of them) from the provider tab in the website administration tool i get the following error:

Provider Management
Could not establish a connection to the database.
If you have not yet created the SQL Server database, exit the Web Site Administration tool, use the aspnet_regsql command-line utility to create and configure the database, and then return to this tool to set the provider.

i'm using a MySql database (trying to anyway) i'm wondering if i don't have something correct in my config file.

on the security tab i get this error:

The following message may help in diagnosing the problem: Unable to initialize provider. Missing or incorrect schema. (C:\src\StudyTimeTracker\web.config line 23).

i'm using .NET 3.5 or higher, MySQL connector 5.2.7 (have also tried with 6.3), MySQL Workbench 5.2. I found a script that I ran to auto generate the tables in my MySQL db, although when I follow instructions on the various popular links out there, they all tell me that the schema should be autogenerated via the inclusion of the ' autogenerateschema="true" ' property that i add in my web config to the membership and other providers. i'll post the links to the various places that i've already been in a follow up to this one. this is a repost of a similar question but with a few more details

what am i doing wrong? webconfig.txt

here are some links i've already visited:

http://blog.nolanbailey.com/2008/03/08/mysql-aspnet-membership-and-role-provider/194

there is another popular link that i don't have available to me right now but the site with the instructions has an all blue (maybe aqua blue background) on it and i'm sure it would be stumbled upon easily not that it helps right here or gives any clue as to which site but just thought i'd throw it out there...sorry about the vagueness of that...

in my opinion, and its just my humble (probably unfounded) opinion, based solely on the message that i'm getting for some reason the providers can't find the database (or the schema) as it should, but i don't know why. I'm not sure if its a MySQL connector issue, or if the providers are not configured correctly in the webcofig file etc....

also, all of the help (links) that i find are for ASP. NET 2.0. is there a problem with MySQL, the membership provider / site administrator and ASP NET 3.5/4.0?
