Hello

 

Is there a MySQL support? can I just provide a connection string?

 

Thanks

There is no such support out of the box. To make it work you'll have to hack the source code and add another provider. It might also be necessary to provide specific command interpreters for such things as creating an index, altering a table ... But definitely doable if you really want to.

You can also use SQL Server Express and SQL Server Ce which are free alternatives to MySQL.
