    Unanswered: Asp

    Can I use ASP (as opposed to PHP) to query a mySQL database? I know that PHP is "tailored" to mySQL and ASP is mainly used with MS SQL, but can ASP be used with mySQL and PHP with MS SQL?

    Yes, you need to install the MyODBC connector on the server, then create a connection to the database via ADO, just like you would SQL Server (with a different ConnectionString, of course). You can use ODBC or create a DSN-less connection.

    thanks

    Thank you, basically what I got from your answer was yes, it can be done. I am a newb to databases in general, so I am not familiar with what you were talking about when you were explaining what I needed to do to accomplish this. I'm sure as I learn more (books, tuts, etc) I'll understand it better, for now though, I just wanted to know if it could be done. Thank you again.
