This section is only for users who are interested in helping us test our new code. To just get MySQL Connector/ODBC up and running on your system, use a standard release distribution.
The Connector/ODBC code repository uses Git. To check out the latest source code, visit GitHub: https://github.com/mysql/mysql-connector-odbc To clone the Git repository to your machine, use this command
git clone https://github.com/mysql/mysql-connector-odbc.git
You should now have a copy of the entire Connector/ODBC source
tree in the directory
To build and then install the driver libraries from this source
tree on Unix or Linux, use the same steps outlined in
Section 4.5, “Building Connector/ODBC from a Source Distribution on Unix”.
If you have gotten to the make stage and the
distribution does not compile, please report it to
On Windows, make use of Windows Makefiles
WIN-Makefile_debug in building the driver.
For more information, see
Section 4.4, “Building Connector/ODBC from a Source Distribution on Windows”.
After the initial checkout operation to get the source tree, run git pull periodically to update your source according to the latest version.
