    Remote database access

    AndrewMacdonald111 Level 1

      I am trying to access a remote MySQL database using Flash Builder on the Mobile platform but can't find any same apps on the tour de flex or doc online to show how to do it. When trying to connect to a data/service the required parameters are not correct for what I am trying to do.

       

      Does anyone know how to do this? I just want to connect to a server with datatbases on it with the hostname, port, username and password.

      Whats the best way to do it?

       

      Thanks

          I use HTTPService declerations which point to PHP files on my server.
          The PHP files connect to the database, get the information I want and then echo back the result.

           

          Not sure if there is a way to do this directly from flex but PHP is well documented and there are lots of tutorials about.

           

          Hope this helps you get going.
