Hello Ian,
Just one question: the "native" MySQL-Connector should be included in
3.6.2. I had a lot of trouble in the past with it, but now it seems to be
the best choice of all the possible connectors (Native, ODBC, JDBC).
In any case, reading through your steps - I think that
- the database name should be the name of the database as defined in the
  create database statement of MySQL
- did you specify the correct path for the jdbc-connector?

Hi AlL,

Am trying to use Base with a MySQL Database and need help please.

OpSys - PCLinux 2012-6 KDE
LO - Version
My SQL is installed and running.
MyAdmin is installed (and I have created an empty Database with this)
MySQL connector - Downloaded 'mysql-connector-java-5.1.22'
Restarted LO then Started Base
Select 'Connect to existing Database' - MySQL
Accept 'Connect using JDBC'
Database Name - I entered 'path and file name'
Server - localhost (everything is on the local computer)
Port No - 3306
Driver Class - accept 'com.mysql.jdbc.Driver'
Test Class
*ERROR* - The JDBC driver could not be loaded.

The Wiki says /"You can find the correct class name in the documentation
that came with the driver. MySQL java connector archive version 5.1.6
contains connector-j.pdf document with description in subdirectory docs.
The class name is *com.mysql.jdbc.Driver* for version 5.1.6."/

But there are NO pdf files in the Folder!!

Can anyone confirm that my steps are correct and give me details on how
to cure the error please?

Thanks a lot

Pretoria SA.
