Can anyone please help me. I'm really stuck trying to fix this on my own. I'm running iASP on Mac OSX (to let me develope ASP web pages.) For the life of me I can not get it to work with MySQl that I have installed on my machine. I have tried everything. Even the instructions at (http://www.halcyonsoft.com/gq15.asp), but I still doesn't work. So here's what I've got. OSX 10.2.8 iASP 2.1 (works fine except for MySQL) SQL Driver = MySQL Connector/J 3.0 (mys3_st_It.so) MySQL 126.96.36.199 (works fine with PHP and others.) ===================================================== Here's the connection string that I'm using: ConnectionString="DRIVER=com.mysql.jdbc.Driver; URL=jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/test?user=root&password=password" set con = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection") con.open(ConnectionString) ===================================================== Here's the error that I get: Vbscript Runtime error 'ASP 0185 : 3219' Invalid authorization specification: Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: YES) /test.asp,line 8 What am I doing wrong?? I'm using the MSQL root account so it should work? Can anyone please help me?? I'd be eternally grateful.
