Starting on October 19, 2021, we will enable single-sign-on for our Plesk Support Center to provide a seamless login/account experience. This implies that you’ll be able to use a single account across any of our web-facing properties.
To be prepared for this change and to avoid the need to register during your next ticket submission after the change, we encourage you to create an account here before October 19 using the same email address as your current Zendesk login (support account). It’s essential that you use the same email address on our support center to ensure that your tickets stay attached to the same account. You will continue to use ZenDesk authentication until we switch over to single-sign-on on October 19th.

    step 4 is incorrect as adding > after bin64 would cause an error.  replace > with \ and remove the space.

    i add only (  Unicode Driver ) in connection string and problem resolved

    Change this :

    Conn.Open "DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 5.3 };SERVER=localhost; DATABASE=psa; UID=admin;PASSWORD=mypassword;Port=8306; OPTION=3"

    To :

    Conn.Open "DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 5.3 Unicode Driver};SERVER=localhost; DATABASE=psa; UID=admin;PASSWORD=mypassword;Port=8306; OPTION=3"


    Best Regards
