Remote SQL Server Installation possible?

Post by scubafy » Wed May 29, 2013 5:48 pm

Wanted to know if it was possible to remotely install the Vueminder on the SQL database on our Web-hoster? We are using it for other things and theirs is much more reliable than a small server in our office. I know that the VM server install package is combined with mySQL. Any options?

Hi scubafy, are you referring to VueMinder Server? If so, you could install it on a web server, but the server needs to be running Windows Server 2003 or later. The VueMinder Server installation will install Microsoft SQL Server (if not already installed). Note, that's not the same thing as MySQL.

Also, you'll probably need to make changes to the server firewall to allow external access to the VueMinder database. More information can be found in VueMinder Server instructions linked above. The instructions mostly refer to the server running on your local network, but it is possible to connect to the database running on an external server.

I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
