    Unanswered: Database Path

    I am making a project using asp. Within the asp code the path to the db is required many a times. Is there a physical file for the whole db. When i tried to use the following path to a database named test it gave me an incorrect path message
    mysql\bin\data\test.

    What would be the exact path to the database called test and is there a specific database file?

    The path is only used for file based data storage formats, such as Excel, dBase, and Jet. The path doesn't even make any sense for true client/server database engines like MySQL.

    Look more toward the MS-SQL or Oracle examples instead of the Excel or Jet examples as patterns for your MySQL connection string.
