I am hosting with a particular copmpany, and I have asked them to setup a database for me. They did. I wrote a small program in perl that uses DBI to check for available drivers. When I run it, it does not see the MySQL driver. I contacted the host, but I never got a clear answer. It seems that I might be at fault here. Maybe I am missing something.
What do I need to do given that I have my database name, user name and password?

Perhaps you should just telnet in there and try to access the mysql Database by using the command 'mysql -u username -ppasword'

That didn't work. I tried something else and it worked fine (it was something I got from the MySQL forum).
I appreciate your help.
