Berikut adalah cara bagaimana kita membuat connection script agar terhubung ke database MySQL menggunakan ASP. Setelah kita terhubung ke database MySQL dari ASP, kita dapat belajar bagaimana untuk memilih data dari tabel database MySQL dan menampilkan hasilnya di browser. Untuk itu yang diperlukan agar koneksi ke database MySQL dari ASP, kita perlu menginstal MySQL ODBC Driver-MyODBC 3.51.

Cara I – menggunakan DSN

<%
‘declare the variables
Dim Connection
Dim Recordset
Dim SQL

‘declare the SQL statement that will query the database
SQL = “SELECT * FROM TABLE_NAME”

‘create an instance of the ADO connection and recordset objects
Set Connection = Server.CreateObject(“ADODB.Connection”)
Set Recordset = Server.CreateObject(“ADODB.Recordset”)

‘open the connection to the database
Connection.Open “DSN=dsn_name”

‘Open the recordset object executing the SQL statement and return records
Recordset.Open SQL,Connection

‘first of all determine whether there are any records
If Recordset.EOF Then
Response.Write(“No records returned.”)
Else
‘if there are records then loop through the fields
Do While NOT Recordset.Eof
Response.write Recordset(“FIRST_FIELD_NAME”)
Response.write Recordset(“SECOND_FIELD_NAME”)
Response.write Recordset(“THIRD_FIELD_NAME”)
Response.write “<br>”
Recordset.MoveNext
Loop
End If

‘close the connection and recordset objects freeing up resources
Recordset.Close
Set Recordset=nothing
Connection.Close
Set Connection=nothing
%>

Cara II – Tanpa DNS

<%
‘declare the variables
Dim Connection
Dim ConnectionString
Dim Recordset
Dim SQL

‘declare the SQL statement that will query the database
SQL = “SELECT * FROM TABLE_NAME”

‘define the connection string, specify database driver
ConnString = “DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver}; SERVER=localhost; DATABASE=Your_Mysql_DB; ” &_
“UID=mysql_username;PASSWORD=mysql_password; OPTION=3”

‘create an instance of the ADO connection and recordset objects
Set Connection = Server.CreateObject(“ADODB.Connection”)
Set Recordset = Server.CreateObject(“ADODB.Recordset”)

‘Open the connection to the database
Connection.Open ConnString

‘Open the recordset object executing the SQL statement and return records
Recordset.Open SQL,Connection

‘first of all determine whether there are any records
If Recordset.EOF Then
Response.Write(“No records returned.”)
Else
‘if there are records then loop through the fields
Do While NOT Recordset.Eof
Response.write Recordset(“FIRST_FIELD_NAME”)
Response.write Recordset(“SECOND_FIELD_NAME”)
Response.write Recordset(“THIRD_FIELD_NAME”)
Response.write “<br>”
Recordset.MoveNext
Loop
End If

‘close the connection and recordset objects freeing up resources
Recordset.Close
Set Recordset=nothing
Connection.Close
Set Connection=nothing
%>
