Links SQL Setup

Welcome to Links SQL. Before you can begin to use the program, we need to setup Links SQL to work with your SQL server. You will need to know the following information before proceeding:

- SQL Server Type - common types include mysql, MS-SQL, Oracle
- SQL Hostname - which computer your sql server resides on, typically this is localhost.
- SQL Database Name - which database you want Links SQL to use.
- SQL Username/Password - a username/password to log on to the SQL database.
If you don't know the answer to any of this, please contact your ISP. If you are still stuck, please visit our support page at:
