Hi Again, Ewald,

// I think I'ts a shame information like this isn't in the ZMySQLDA docs. I
// think
// it's also a bit of a shame that it's so easy (at least for stupid folks
// like me :-)
// to download an old version of ZMySQLDA from zope.org while installing
// version 1.2
// is a piece of cake.

If you search the archives for my name (Walstad) you will see a LOT of
questions on how to compile the MySQLDA and MySQLDB.  I had a really hard
time with it.  I now have it working nicely and am happy with it on my
"hobby" sites (www.walstads.net).  However, I  am now considering going to
PostgreSQL, instead of MySQL, to serve a business site I am working on so I
may have even more to learn.  If you are going to use your DB for a
production site, I would recommend you look into the comparisons between
MySQL and PostgreSQL.  PostgreSQL may be a better fit for you and getting
started with it now may save you some frustration later on.  The mailing
list archives have a few discussions on the differences and benefits of each

As far as poor documentation goes, I feel your pain.  If you believe in "No
Pain, No Gain" then relax, you are going to gain a lot from the experience.
I'm not a masichist, but I am glad I stuck with it.  I like the "open sores"
(that's what my wife calls it) community as it has no borders and promotes
boundless learning.  I'm sure everyone on the list has had similar
experiences and will help out as "free" time allows.

Good luck.
