Connecting to MySQL database from Base

Sunday, January 2nd, 2011

Quick one here… if you want to connect to a MySQL database from Base, you need to install the package:

sudo apt-get install

After this is complete, make sure OpenOffice is completely restarted (i.e. not just the Base app, if you have a Writer window open, this needs to be closed too). Then just follow the prompts for connecting to an existing database (choose “MySQL” and “Connect directly” as you work through the wizard).
