Unanswered: Baby Steps, Visual Studio 2008 connect to MySQL
OK, I am sorry for the stupid question, but I need a little spoon feeding to get started.
I have visual studio 2008. I also have downloaded and installed mysql and setup an instance as well as connected and viewed the default tables - and seen where to add tables, and have a basic notion of how to do that. I have downloaded libMYSQL.dll, but have not idea how to add it to the project, nor am I sure if it matters where in the webconfig I add the connection strings.
Until now everything I have done has been in Access or SQL Server - but for my new project I want to publish on the web, so MYSQL seems like the right choice as does visual studio, but I can't seem to get started. Any info would be appreciated - I don't expect anyone to write the app for me, but enough to get me started would be much appreciated.
