Accessing your MySQL database with Perl
The Perl module, DBI.pm is a convenient way to connect to the database from within Perl scripts. Please read the documentation about DBI.pm. Full documentation for the Perl module use is available from this link
Please be advised that Mochahost can not support your custom programming or scripts.
Here are the basics of connecting: NOTE: substitute the following values in the script below:
$hostname = "localhost"
$database = the new database
$user = your username and $password = the password you set.
use DBI; $driver = "mysql"; $dsn = "DBI:$driver:database=$database;host=$hostname"; $dbh = DBI->connect($dsn, $user, $password);
