Direct MySQL Access From the Internet
- Make offsite backups.
- Perform load-in of data.
- Make use of GUI database management tools from your workstation.
Access to the Project database servers is typically firewalled. To provide this direct access over the Internet, we temporarily (4 hours at time) open a hole in our firewall to permit your traffic to the project database servers. Access is provided on-demand on a per-IP basis through the management interface at: https://apps.sourceforge.net/admin/UNIXNAME/ (replace UNIXNAME with the UNIX name of your project).
Once access has been granted via the management interface, you may connect using the MySQL server provided to your project, using one of the database accounts provided to your project.
mysql -u USERNAME -h mysql-LETTER.sourceforge.net -P 4040 -p
