"Data source name is not found and no default driver specified.Could not connect to SQLConnect"
So...anybody out there can help me to connect to MySQL.
FYI, i m advanced user in SQL Server but when comes to MySQL@RedHat...i m nothing!
Why are you using a ODBC connection to your localhost? If you have started MySQL properly then you are able to connect to the localhost (mysql db) by typing:
mysql -p (type the passwd from the currently logged-in user)
Please let me know what you are exactly planning to do ....
