How Do I Connect To MySQL Via ASP?

You will need to use a DSNless connection which can be achieved by using code with the following VBscript:

set rsEvents = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
rsEvents.ActiveConnection = "Driver={MySQL}; DATABASE=databasename;USER=username; PASSWORD=password; Server="

...or the following JScript:

var rsEvents = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset");
rsEvents.ActiveConnection = "Driver={MySQL}; DATABASE=databasename;USER=username; PASSWORD=password; Server=";
