My ODBC was working perfectly and has now just stopped.

I have checked the MySQL Connector ODBC and the configuration settings are correct.

What else can I check?

Does your script test for error conditions and visualize those?

Hi!

Are you able to connect to the database using the ODBC test connection ?
If not check if there is any firewall blocking the port.
Is the database accessible locally where the it is hosted ?
Is your database user that you use to connect to the database allowed to connect from that particular IP address or any IP address ?

Please see the grading guidelines here:

A should be the default grade awarded unless the answer is deficient.
When closing the question, the asker should explain why a B grade was awarded.
So what was wrong with the answer?
