I have been looking and looking on how to connect a Golang application to a MySQL database (I am using the MyMySQL library with the database/sql interface). If I use the none native version not the database/sql interface I can get the connection to work perfectly and perform queries. If I try to connect using the database/sql go interface (which I think is the best way to interface to MySQL?) then I just cannot get the connection to work? The error I keep getting is 'Wrong database part of URI'?????
Sorry for the variable names but I have been trying and trying to get various versions working so the names are a bit screwy sorry again.
I am grateful for any help understanding my problem, thanks again for your time.
