In the above program, we imported a namespace MySql.Data.MySqlClient to establish the connection with the MySql database. Then we created a module Module1 that contains a Main() function.

The Main() function is the entry point for the program. In the Main() function, we created a connection string variable ConnString that contains the database connectivity credentials. After that we established the connection to the database using MySqlConnection class and then get the MySql version using ExecuteScalar() method of MySqlCommand class and print the result on the console screen.
