MYSQL and EZSurvey on the same machine:

The MySQL data source connector is called MyODBC and can be downloaded from the MySQL download site. Please note that not every version of MyODBC is compatible with MySQL or EZSurvey. With MySQL 4.X use MyODBC version 3.51.8. With MySQL 5.0 use MyODBC version 3.51.12.
