SQL - Bad connection string format, can not find '='


Just created a server after a good 8 month break and I am unable to get it going. 

I am running this on Server 2016.

The error I get is:

extDB2: Found extdb-conf.ini
extDB2: Detected 24 Cores, Setting up 6 Worker Threads

[01:26:22:499831 --7:00] [Thread 5292] extDB2: Database Type: MySQL
[01:26:22:500445 --7:00] [Thread 5292] extDB2: Database Exception Error: MySQL: [MySQL]: create session: bad connection string format, can not find '='
[01:26:22:500909 --7:00] [Thread 5292] extDB2: Sending Shutdown to Armaserver

I checked extdb-conf.ini and it looks good, I am honestly not sure why this is coming up but the server won't start.


Any ideas?


EDIT: Looks like if I launch it as arma3server_x64.exe, it works fine? But it won't run as 32 bit.
