I am developing a website right now and I want to connect the web database to my visual basic 6.0 application.

Is it possible that I can connect to the mysql web database?

I know how to connect to mysql database to a land based connection but I never tried to connect it to a web database.

Please provide me a sample code on how I can do it as I really need it to finish my project.

Edited for Readability and Grammar.

I would expect that you just need to specify the location in your connection string, but given that VB6 has been obsolete and unsupported for a decade, it's hard to understand why anyone is using it and hard to know what functionality that we consider basic was added to it a decade ago, when it was still being worked on.
