How To Connect to MySQL Database Server using Perl Language?

There are two ways with which you can connect with the mysql database.

  1. DBI module
  2. mysql module

Most of the people make use of the DBI module to connect with the mysql and the postgresql. The reason being the specified DBI module is more than enough to connect with the database.

So video makes use of the DBI module. It just uses the module by calling the syntax.

use DBI; 

As you can see there are very less videos on the mysql module. So you may have to experiment in such case for the mysql driver. And see if it works out in that case for your project.
