Hi there everyone,
I have always used MySQL with PHP without any problems using the standard
MySQL connection functionality. Is it possible to connect to a MySQL DB via
ODBC? If so, what would the PHP Connection string be? I am curious as my
email server allows you to use external databases for users accounts and I
figure this way I could write a PHP script to control users email accounts.
Thanks everyone, sorry if this sounds like a stupid question, not used ODBC
before so even though I know quite abit about PHP/MySQL, I know diddly about
PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/)
