#28072 MySQL usage question

Jacob Moorman
Brian Thomason

I'm the head developer on a small project I just
moved here named AutoAlien... The reason for my
coming here was for your MySQL database services...

I've used it lightly, but am a novice at it and was
simply wondering if the following was possible
through your site:

I need to setup a database that can be queried by the
program I am writing... Reading through your site, I
see you say that the databases here are only
accessible using PHP scipts hosted on your site - Is
this correct?

Please get back to me at your earliest convenience,
and thanks for the wonderful project you guys are

    SourceForge.net hosted MySQL project databases may be
    accessed only from the SourceForge.net site; we support
    numerous scripting languages for this purpose (including
    PHP, perl and python), and provide access to the MySQL
    monitor ('mysql') on the project shell servers. We do not
    permit access to project databases from hosts other than
    those on the SourceForge.net project server network. Should
    you have further questions or concerns regarding this
    matter, please submit a new support request.

    Thank you,
