Hi John,

You have reached the maintainers of the Zope.org website. Unfortunately, we
cannot help you with your MySQL database adapter specific problem. Your best
bet is to either ask your question on the Zope-DB mailinglist, or directly
ask the author of the product.

More info on the Zope-DB mailinglist and othe Zope related lists, see:


The author of the product in question can be reached by clicking on the
"Feedback to this page's author" link in the footer of the page where you
downloaded the product.

Last but nor least you could try and see if anyone on the #zope IRC channel
on irc.zope.org can help you out. See:


Hope this helps!
