MySQL


You can use the MySQL connector from the CData Sync application to move data from any supported source to the MySQL destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Add the MySQL Connector

To enable Sync to use data from MySQL, you first must add the connector, as follows:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Destinations tab and locate the MySQL row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row to open the New Connection page. If the Configure Connection icon is not available, click the Download Connector icon to install the MySQL connector. For more information about installing new connectors, see Connections.

After you add the connector, you need to set the required properties.

  • Connection Name - Enter a connecton name of your choice

  • Server - Enter the host name or IP address of the server that hosts the MySQL database. To connect to the database from the same machine, enter localhost as the value for Server.
