Accessing your MySQL database with Perl
The Perl module, DBI.pm is a convenient way to connect to the database from within Perl scripts. Please read the documentation about DBI.pm. Full documentation for the Perl module use is available from: http://search.cpan.org/doc/JWIED/Msql-Mysql-modules-1.2214/mysql/lib/DBD/mysql.pm
Please be advised that ChromeIS can not support your custom programming or scripts.
Here are the basics of connecting:
NOTE: substitute the following values in the script below:
$hostname = “localhost”
$database = the new database
$user = your username and $password = the password you set.
use DBI; $driver = “mysql”; $dsn = “DBI:$driver:database=$database;host=$hostname”; $dbh = DBI->connect($dsn, $user, $password);
