in reply to MySQL ODBC under Windows hangs

Also, I've studied the SQL.LOG after running the Perl CGI app, and it appears that all connections and queries performed correctly. It's just that no results appear in the browser, and then the server times out.

If you've verified in the logs that the connections and queries from Perl are ok then I don't think your connection string is the problem. Have you tried dumping the query results to a file to verify that the query is indeed working and you are getting the expected data returned? Could you post some more Perl code so we can see how you are gathering the query results?

    vek -- thanks for the reply.

    Here's a tiny program the shows the problem. This snippet works with SQL Server and Foxpro db's using ODBC.
    #! /usr/local/bin/perl -w use strict; use CGI qw(:standard escapeHTML); $::DSN = "MWEBMYSQL"; use DBI; $::dbh = DBI->connect ("dbi:ODBC:$::DSN", "ODBC") || die ("Cannot conn +ect to Data Source '$::DSN'"); my ($count) = $::dbh->selectrow_array ("select count(*) from logon"); print header ('text/html', '200 OK'); print "<html><body>Found $count records in LOGON</body></html>";
    When I run this from the command line (instead of as a web app), the correct results are shown, but the cursor stays right after </html> and I never get back to a command prompt.

    "marto" suggested (thanks!) that I should use DBD::MySQL. However, the latest on the ActiveState website is version 2.1004, November 16, 2001. Has anyone tried this with MySQL 5.0 yet?

    Thanks a million for any ideas!
