Qt connecting to a remote MySQL server
I complied my sql drivers as shown in the link
with a little changes, i.e. MySql version is 5.1
Is it possible connect to a remote MySQL server (may be a different version) with these drivers?
Purele speaking of Qt: yes, if the underlying mysql drivers support it. I'm not 100% sure, but as far as I remember, the drivers are backwards compatible, so you should be able to connect to an older server with a newer driver. But why don't you just try it in your current setup? Just fire up the mysql command line tool and try to connect...
