Does anyone know of a host that offers this? everyone offers unix/mysql and windows/mssql(or access).. asp/mysql works but it seems to be impossible to find a host that offers it.
Ach @ justin! ChiliSoft or other xNix based ASP solutions are not allowed!!
Anyways, http://www.adehost.com seems amazing. I've been with them for just over a month and have been incredibly impressed with teh service and the prices. In fact later this month or early next I'll be upgrading to a reseller account so I can host all my domains on their servers.
Say hi to Asher for me if you join
I contacted adehost to ask..
"Is it possible to connect from microsoft asp on your windows servers to
mysql databases.. most host don't offer this so I just wanted to check.."
this is the response I got..
"Hmm, i dont think thats a feature in ASP at all. Unless there's somesort of custom component installed."
Are you connecting to mysql via odbc on their servers?
To connect to a MySQL Server, I think they will need to istall MyODBC which will install the MySQL Driver which will then let you connect using both a DSN and a DSNless connection.
I could be wrong, but when I was reseaching an article, that is the only way I could find.
Sunny: you ask him, you know him better
aspapp: dunno what it looks like, sorry, never used it before.
yeah.. I figured they must have myodbc installed on the server.. but the last answer I got from their support rep was..
"No im sure we do not. Unless somone else installed it i dont know.
so I was just making sure that before I sign up that it's possible.. and they don't give me the "sorry we don't support that" answer
