    Hi there,

    OK, you need 3 things. Firstly, you need the MySQL database server. You want to download the windows binary from http://www.mysql.com/ - a direct URL is:

    http://www.mysql.com/Downloads/MySQL-3.23/mysql-3.23.49-win.zip

    Then you need to use PPM to install the DBI and DBD modules so you can use MySQL databases from within Perl. I wrote these instructions for a webhost...a lot of them seem clueless about installing Perl modules...or maybe I've just had a bad experience.


    1) Go to a MS DOS shell.



    2) Change directory to where Perl is installed (e.g. cd C:PerlBin



    3) To run Perl Package Manager, type: ppm

    HINT: If you can't locate the folder where Perl/PPM is installed, the type:

    cd

    dir ppm /s /b

    NOTE: You must be on the drive that Perl is installed on, probably C:



    4) Once you're in Perl Package Manger, type:-

    install DBI

    And it should install DBI.



    5) Then type:

    install DBD-Mysql
    And it should install the MySQL Database Drivers.


    6) Once that's done, type exit.



    Hope this helps you out!

    Jonathan
