I am trying to connect from a microsoft server usingvbscript on .asp pages to a mysql database on a linux system

<%

strconn="PROVIDER=MSDASQL;DRIVER={SQL Server};"

strconn=strconn & "SERVER=spruc.he.net;DATABASE=uksh;"

strconn=strconn & "UID=uk;PWD=508jgwcz;"

mySQL="select * from users"

dim conntemp, rstemp

set conntemp=server.createobject("adodb.connection")

response.write strconn

conntemp.open strconn

set rstemp=conntemp.execute(mysql)

%>

is the code i am using but the following error message comes up,

PROVIDER=MSDASQL;DRIVER={SQL Server};SERVER=spruc.he.net;DATABASE=uk;UID=uksh;P WD=508jgwcz;
