wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hello Monks, I wish you all a really awesome 2005.
My regards to everyone that replied to my last node, you guys are on my thanks list :)
I'm having problems connecting to MySQL through Perl for some data management of a small program I'm building. I'm a begginer at this, so I've been reading all the tutorials on databases in the tutorials section. Since I'm all newbie there are a lot of things I don't understand, but I have managed this far somehow. But now I'm dealing with two things I don't know much about, Perl and MySQL...and I'm stuck. Right now I'm trying to figure out how to connect to the MySQL server. For this, I was trying to use the example in stephen's Reading from a database tutorial. However, I keep getting an error I don't quite understand.
So, here's the deal: I'm running on Windows 2000 Pro, MySQL Server 4.1 with MySQL administrator 1.0 and ActivePerl 5.8.
My code goes like this for the connection part:
Well, the database is ligas, and the user 'perlclient' with password 'todito' were created in Administrator, with the proper priviledges over database ligas, which has its respective tables.
The error I get from that is this:
So, I'm really lost here, any pointers I can get about the nature of this error or how to fix it would be great. Thanks!!
