MySQL 5.1 Database Creation works, but ODBC driver doesn't exist? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Websitepanel 1.1.0 + Mysql 5.1 with connector 6.2.4 (wpi installed it with 6.2.3 and updated after reading a few posts on the forums to see if this would resolve the issue)

    While the end user can create a Mysql database and user through WSP, they only see SQL Server as a driver option under ODBC Driver:

    (I have an existing site that was originally designed to use the MySQL 5 ODBC Driver)

    I feel pretty silly, but I didn't install the ODBC connector that I though was the 6.2.4 connector above.

     

    I downloaded and installed the ODBC 5.1.8 connector and it popped up in the drop down for the end user)

    http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/odbc/

    (In case anyone sees this, I downloaded the 10.1M Windows (x86, 64-bit), MSI Installer Connector-ODBC for 5.1.8)

     

    How do I mark this question solved/answered and leave it here so if anyone else is as ODBC challenged as myself, they can find the answer?

  • You can't propose you own posts as answer. Thus I did it :)
