Connect remotely to databases
If you want to connect remotely to a database, you must enable Direct Database Access when setting it up1 — you cannot enable it later.
Note: Direct database connections do not support secured (SSL) connections.
Applications that connect remotely to databases use similar settings. You can find database's specific information using View my database details in Web & Classic Hosting.
|Field||What to enter...|
