Subject:Three easy, FAST-REPLY questions re: MySQLGUI
View as plain text  
Folks,

On my FreeBSD UNIX/Apache virtual private server (ISP is NTT/Verio), I
have MySQL-3.23.49 installed with one empty database and password
created to get me started.

My desktop "box" is Windows XP Pro.

I've already downloaded and installed MyODBC 3.51.03 (full package/docs)
and my MS MDAC is equivalent to version 2.7 RTM (2.20.7713.4), according
to Microsoft's little self-tester utility.

So far, the ONLY problem I'm having is with my DSN Configuration with
the MyODBC 3.51.03 driver as revealed in the following popup message:

"[MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver] Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost'
(10061)"

I know there are SEVERAL OTHER installation/configuration chores to
complete before I enjoy the wonders of MySQL.

Hence...my downloading MySQLGUI to tackle those chores more effectively
in combination with reading the ~!@#$% manuals over and over and over.

MY THREE QUESTIONS...finally...

1. I notice in my Windows Registry and the odbc.ini file that references
to
   myodbc3 are preceded by TWO--sometimes THREE--back slashes like the
   sample below...

                    Driver32=C:\WINDOWS\System32\\\myodbc3.dll

   For whatever technical reasons that multiple back slashes ARE
required,
   HOW MANY should be present before the myodbc file references?

   ___ Only 1 back slash is required.

   ___ back slashes ARE required.


To "compile" MySQLGUI to help me easily access/configure/use MySQL on a
FreeBSD Unix/Apache server from Windows XP Pro (dial-up)...

2.  WHICH of the following items                  3. In WHAT order do I 
    MUST I download (i.e., x_YES)? ..and then....    install/configure
them?

                                           1st  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th
