I have set up a database on Dreamhost with a host name and a couple of users
What I need to know is how do I connect to the database externally.
I am developing a small application that needs to access this database from a desktop PC. There will be several users and they are spread out all over the place so a centralised DB is the answer.
I will be using the MySQL SDK for DB access to be run on a Windows/Intell box.
I don't want to use PHP and HTML to do this because that would mean I have to learn PHP and I already know C++ and I don't want to spend more than a week or two doing this.
Thank you in advance.
