NAME

       gammu-smsd-odbc - gammu-smsd(1) backend using ODBC abstraction layer to
       use any supported database as a message storage

DESCRIPTION

       New in version 1.29.92.

       ODBC backend stores all data in any database supported by  ODBC,  which
       parameters   are   defined   by  configuration  (see  gammu-smsdrc  for
       description of configuration options).

       For tables description see gammu-smsd-tables.

       This backend is based on gammu-smsd-sql.

SUPPORTED DRIVERS

       On Microsoft Windows, Gammu  uses  native  ODBC,  on  other  platforms,
       unixODBC can be used.

LIMITATIONS

       Due  to  limits  of  the  ODBC  interface,  you might have to tweak SQL
       queries to work in used SQL server, see SQL Queries for more details.

       Partially this can be configured using SQL.

CONFIGURATION

       Before running gammu-smsd you need to create necessary  tables  in  the
       database.  You  can  use  examples  given in database specific backends
       parts of this manual to do that.

       You specify data source name (DSN) as Host in  gammu-smsdrc.  The  data
       source is configured depending on your platform.

       On  Microsoft  Windows, you can find instructions on Microsoft website:
       http://support.microsoft.com/kb/305599

       For   unixODBC   this   is   documented    in    the    user    manual:
       http://www.unixodbc.org/doc/UserManual/

EXAMPLE

       Example configuration:

       [smsd]
       service = sql
       driver = odbc
       host = dsn_of_your_database
       sql = sql_variant_to_use
       user = username
       password = password
