Sorry, but for the moment I don't think you can save options for
MySQLManager. We hope that the new MySQL client that will be released
very shortly (read hours, check http://www.mysql.com/downloads.html) will
replease MySQLManager as no one is doing any development on
mandolin> 2) On my local network I use TCP/IP, "my" PC has the IP 188.8.131.52, this is
mandolin> the same PC on which the MySQL server is located. As I explained in my first
mandolin> question, I can't save any settings in the MySqlManager. However, even if I
mandolin> use the default settings, in which "host" seems to be "localhost", the
mandolin> Windows ODBC setup program (or whatever it is) can't find the SQL server
mandolin> anyway. Exactly, how, step by step shall I use the ODBC setup (in Windows)
mandolin> to make the MySql server, work?
MySQLManager doesn't use ODBC. Have you installed MyODBC ?
mandolin> Please, please, please help me. And even if you're to "lazy" (no offence) to
