I am a newby with teid and wanted to install the odbc driver to query a virtual database running on teiid. For this I have a question: I already queried a mysql database with odbc and there I needed to install the driver on the machine where the mysql server was running. I have seen in the documentation that I need to install the driver on the machine the application will be running (a webserver running php), but not where teiid is installed (teiid is running on a different machine than the webserver):
"Before an application can use ODBC, you must first install the ODBC driver on same machine that the application is running on and then create Data Source Name (DSN) that represents a connection profile for your Teiid VDB."
Is this correct?
If your web application is going to access the VDB through ODBC, then you need to install the ODBC driver on the same machine as your webserver. Then you need to configure the DSN. So, yes the document is correct.
