http://mail.easysoft.com/pipermail/unixodbc-support/2004-August/000111.html this was the tutorial and here are the steps we did to get around the error messages

1)created the odbc.ini and .odbc.ini and created odbcinst.ini and .odbcinst.ini in the home dir

2) made a symlink ls -s /usr/lib/libmyodbc3-3.51.12.so ./libmyodbc.so http://help.hardhathosting.com/question.php/95

3)two files version names are wrong, so cp and rename i.e. cp libcrypto.so.0.9.8 libcrypto.so.0.9.7


5)mysql.sock is in /tmp/

Here are the files __________________________________ /etc/odbc.ini

[MySQL-test] Description = MySQL database test Driver = MySQL Server = localhost Database = test Port = 3306 Socket = /tmp/mysql.sock Option = Stmt =

_________________________ /etc/odbcinst.ini

[MySQL] Description = ODBC Driver for MySQL Driver = /usr/lib/libmyodbc.so Setup = /usr/lib/libodbcmyS.so FileUsage = 1

___________ For a remote connection there are a couple of extra steps 1) hosts.all needs "mysqld: ALL" 2) verify port 3306 is listening by "netstat -ant" in shell 3) grant permission to individual IP in mysql http://www.cyberciti.biz/nixcraft/vivek/blogger/2006/03/how-do-i-enable-remote-access-to-mysql.php Grant access to new database If you want to add new database called foo for user bar and remote IP then you need to type following commands at mysql> prompt:

mysql> CREATE DATABASE foo; mysql> GRANT ALL ON foo.* TO bar@'' IDENTIFIED BY 'PASSWORD'; Grant access to existing database Let us assume that you are always making connection from remote IP called for database called webdb for user webadmin then you need to grant access to this IP address. At mysql> prompt type following command for existing database:

mysql> update db set Host='' where Db='webdb'; mysql> update user set Host='' where user='webadmin';

From remote system type command:

$ mysql -u webadmin –h –p You can also use telnet to connect to port 3306 for testing purpose:

$ telnet 3306
