I host a website for a customer who wants to add a MySQL database to the site. We've created the database and populated it with the SQL but he cannot connect to the database. This is the sort of error he gets:
Try: server=127.0.0.1; database=webdb; uid=application; pwd=<pwd>;
Error # 0x80004005 (-2147467259) [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified
Seems as though I need to add a DSN for him but at this point have no idea how to tell the server it's a MySQL and not an SQL DSN I need. Can someone point me in the right direction?
