Hi Everyone,

is it possible to use a MySQL service hosted somewhere else (ie not on a PC)? The website I use does have an SQL implementation on it but I don't know how I should configure VueMinder - or even if it will work at all.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Hi Paul, welcome to the forums.

VueMinder can sync with an existing MySQL Server hosted on an external website. Instead of entering a computer name in the Sharing Options, enter the website server's IP address. When syncing with an existing server, VueMinder will add a new database schema to the server and won't affect any of the existing database schemas.

Note, your account will need to either have "DB Admin" rights or the permissions indicated in step 2.17 on the page linked below:

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