How do I connect my ASP.net application to MySQL database?
In general, 2 different methods can be used to connect an ASP.net application to MySQL database.
- Using ODBC .net data provider
- Using a MySQL native .net data provider
We only provide support for using ODBC .net data provider to connect to MySQL.
Our servers do not have any MySQL .net data provider installed because of the lack of standardization in this market. If you prefer to use native drivers to connect to MySQL, you can upload the data provider to your bin directory.
Here is a list of available MySQL .net data providers
