Visual Studio and MySQL External database

view full story

http://www.daniweb.com – Hello, I am working with visual studio 2008 and an external website host. The real issue is that I am trying to add a "data connection" from the mysql server on my host to visual studio. On the website host mysql is already installed and running, a Database has been created and a user has been added. When I try to add a connection to an sql database only the local servers are show. In my case the only one shown is the sql-express that is installed with visual studio. So the next issue i would assume is to add the website host to visual studio as a server? and then try to add the connection to the mysql database hosted there? Am i going about this the wrong way, How do I add the website host server? any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks -Scott (General)
