    Powweb & Android App

    Hello.

    I am wondering / looking at designing an android / IOS app to connect with a MYSQL database.

    1) Is this allowed on powweb ? I googleed & saw another provider that prevented external products from accessing the MYSQL database.

    Is this the same on Powweb ?


    2) if it is possible to create an app connecting to Powwebs MYSQL aserver, has anyone found a good tutorial for it ?

    I've found a few tutorials / services, but their demonstrations / videos do not advise how to connect to a MYSQL database.

    what i'm looking for is a tutorial on

    :- Logging in/out (accessing MYSQL to verify password)

    :- Enquire on basic details (name, address, email address etc)

    :- Add / update details -



    I think i only need 2-3 separate / different pages in my app to show different information.

    I'll only push / connect with the database once a day or something (or manually).

    As far as I can remember, the database isn't externally accessible directly. If my memory is correct, you'd need to be accessing it via a webpage / script as is done with wordpress etc.

    Thanks. Ive made a comment on their forum. Though i do not think its going to work - as it is STILL an external script/process trying to access a powweb MYSQL database.
