This applies to Windows Hosting accounts only. 

You will need to use a DSNless connection which can be achieved by using code with the following VBscript: 

set rsEvents = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset") 
rsEvents.ActiveConnection = "Driver={MySQL ODBC 5.1 Driver}; DATABASE=databasename;USER=username; PASSWORD=password; Server=127.0.0.1" 

...or the following JScript: 

var rsEvents = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset");  rsEvents.ActiveConnection = "Driver={MySQL ODBC 5.1 Driver}; DATABASE=databasename;USER=username; PASSWORD=password; Server=127.0.0.1";
