MySQL Database with Classic ASP

Can a MySQL database be used with Classic ASP?

If so, can someone point me to examples?

I am VERY experienced with using MySQL with php.

Thanks

absolutely!

your connection string to the database would look similar to:

connString = "Driver={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver};SERVER=" & db_server & ";DATABASE=" & db_name & ";UID=" & db_username & ";PWD=" & db_userpassword

if you don't want to use ODBC, you can find more options here:

Thanks.

Check my next question on the expected lifetime support for classic ASP on Web Hosts (most likely Apache).
