Overview

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

Environment

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

Steps

  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 https://dev.mysql.com, 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.
  4. Follow the steps on the links below to further configure Kiwi Syslog:
    1. Kiwi Syslog logs to store with SQL database setup screen shots
