dxxd116 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hey, Monks: I used "ppm install DBD-Mysql" to install the module. Even though the console show the installation is successful. When I tested it, it simply does not work as expected(Failing to connect to the database). However, I can install and DBD-MysqlPP correctly and get it work as expected. Please advise what to do in this case.

My "perl -V" produce the following:

    Try increasing verbosity, use  DBI->trace(2);
      I upgrade to the latest version of PERL 5.16.1. Then the problem is solved. Thank you any way.
