newbie asking how to connect to mariadb on a linux server

2 posts in this topic

So I have MariaDB 5.5 on RedHatLinux 6.6 as a server. Can someone point me to the direction where I can find out what do I need to get a working database connection? There's Python 2.6.6. on the server, too, if needed. I'm out of my depth with the server and the support personnel aren't that supportive, so I don't know if I need something else on the server side to make it possible for my AutoIt-script on a Windows machine to access the database on the server?

Welcome to AutoIt and the forum!

Use ADO. How to use ADO in AutoIt is described here.
As MariaDB is a fork of MySQL you should be able to use the connection string for MySQL as described here.
