Cloudways supported options for accessing MySQL databases
What we love about Cloudways is that it allows you to complete your tasks quickly and easily. You will be able to access your MySQL database on the Cloudways server in so many different ways that we will list below. Of course, you can always choose the one that works best for you, as there are so many ways that you can do it. You just have to ensure that you choose the one that is most appropriate and fits your website’s requirements.
We are proud to inform you that there are three methods through which you can access your MySQL database, and we are going to explain all three of them below.
Web-based Cloudways Database Manager
Even if you have no knowledge or are just a newbie, this method is the easiest that you can use to access your MySQL database. The great thing is that the Cloudways Platform actually comes with an integrated database manager. This integrated database manager will allow all users on on the platform to use a web browser in order to access their database in just a single click.
Therefore, you must make sure that you have a working internet connection so that you can access your database easily and quickly.
MySQL Database Connection Over SSH
This is another great methods that you can use to access your database quite easily. In order to use this second method, you will need to make sure that you have set up in SSH tunnel. This SSH tunnel will allow you to access your database.
The great thing about this second method is that it offers all users on the Cloudways Platform a high level of security. This is because it’s supported by encrypted communication in order to ensure that you database is safe, as well as your whole website.
Remote MySQL Database Connection
The third and final option, which is the Remote MySQL Database Connection, is only optional. This means that you can only use it when you need to.
The thing with this option is that it works only for whitelisted IP addresses. This means that it’s most suited for users who want to connect to their MySQL database from other servers that their sites may be sitting on, or from a remote location.
What’s so great about this option is that, just like the second option that we mentioned earlier, it offers users excellent security. In fact, the connection is SSL enabled. What this means is that all communication will be encrypted. As a result, your database and your site remain safe and secure.
