This article provides steps on how to connect your Kiwi Syslog Server to a MySQL database.


Kiwi Syslog 9.x installed on 64 bit OS and using MySQL for database


  1. Download and install the 32 bit MySQL driver since Kiwi Syslog Server is a 32 bit application. It will install the files in the following path:C:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL\Connector ODBC 5.1.
  2. Install ODBC Driver Version 5.1, (© 2017 Oracle Corporation and/or its affiliates, available at, obtained on June 20, 2017.)because it will not work properly with 5.2.
  3. Go to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe and open odbcad32.exe. This is where you will be able to see your 32 bit ODBC driver and configure it to connect with the MySQL database.
