Create a program to make My SQL DB Reports

Postby tom0360 » Sat Jun 07, 2014 5:21 pm

I am considering setting up a simple Neobook Application that connects to a remote MYSQL database from the internet and allows the user to display a report based on the MySQL Data.

First, would this plugin work for that?

Second, would it be safe as it would be run only from the admins computer which no one else has access to.

Any suggestions or information is appreciated.

Thanks

Connecting to a remote Internet database from a desktop app can be very tricky, but it is possible. Most web servers have their security settings configured to prevent it by default, and most cheapo web hosting accounts won't even allow you to enable remote access. You will need to consult with your hosting company or administrator to determine if remote access can be turned on. Once you have that sorted out, you can read the post below to find out more about how to make the connection:
