What is an SQL database?

SQL (Structured Query Language) is a database computer language designed for the retrieval and management of data in relational database management systems (RDBMS), database schema creation and modification, and database object access control management.

Can I save incoming SMS messages (sender address, message text, timestamp) in a database server (MySQL/MSSQL)?

Yes, you can save messages with the database user, or you can configure SQL logging.
The software supports MySQL, MSSQl, Oracle, Access, Postgres, Sybase, and all other database servers that have an OleDb or ODBC driver. It is very easy to setup the SQL connection. More information is available at:

I would like to specify different sender mobile numbers for outgoing messages. Is it possible to do it in the SQL tables to assign the sender mobile number?

Yes, it is possible. You should use the originator field to specify the sender number.

To configure this option, you have to check the "overrideable" checkbox in the sender address section, in the advanced tab of the SQL User configuration form.

I would like to use one database for many "database users". Is this possible?

Yes, it is possible, but you should use different database tables.

For the first database user, you can use ozekimessagein and ozekimessagout for receiving and sending messages. For the second database user, you need to use different table names. For example, you can use ozekimessagein2 and ozekimessageout2. These tables can have the same structure as ozekimessagein and ozekimessageout. After you have created the tables with the new names, you should modify the SQL templates on the configuration form of the second database user in Ozeki NG. In these SQL templates you should change the table names to match the new tables.

When I insert Data into Ozekimessageout table I didn't get message to my cell phone. What would be cause that I didn't get the text message that it is inserted into out table using my SQL console?

First you must find out if the problem is in the SQL to Ozeki or in the Ozeki to mobile network connection. To do this, first send a test SMS from the graphical user interface of the Ozeki software. If the SMS arrives to the recipient mobile phone, the problem is not in the mobile network connection.

The next step is to see if your SMS messages get from the database to the Ozeki software. To check this, insert some messages into the ozekimessageout table, then check the outbox of the database user in the graphical user interface of the Ozeki software.

Once you have identified the location of the problem, read the event list of the corresponding module and find the error message. The error message will probably give you some hints that will help you to resolve the issue.

My Ozeki NG SMS Gateway is always disconnecting from my MySQL server with the following error message: MySQL Server has gone away. What should I do?

You need to setup interactive_timeout value in your MySQL configuration, then modify the connection string to use interactive_timeout parameter of MySQL instead of wait_timeout parameter. If you have added interactive_timeout = 28800 to your my.ini file, restart mysql service, and use the following connection string:

Driver={MySQL ODBC 5.2 ANSI Driver};Server=;Database=ozeki;User=test;Password=test;interactive=;Option=8;
