Default ASP Connection to MySQL

I am attempting to connect to a MySQL database but I cannot seem to get the connection string to work. Here is my string as it stands now...

var MM_connBiblereading_STRING = Server.CreateObject ("ADODB.Connection")
MM_connBiblereading_STRING.Open ("Driver={MySQL}; SERVER=localhost; Port=3306; Option=0; Socket=/tmp/mysql.sock; DATABASE=bibletruthchapel_org; UID=userid; PWD=password;")

Any thoughts as to why it is not working?

Not sure if you got to use Socket=/tmp/mysql.sock; there in your connection string.

Try without that.

Check this out for standard connection strings.
