Question

Accessing mySQL from Delphi application

I’m interested in getting a droplet, installing Ubuntu on it and running a mysql server. I would like to be able to access the mysql from within a delphi application. What I want to know is, if this will be possible without buying any 3rd party database connectors, or can I just use the standard FireDAC related components, like I would if the server was running on a local network.

Hi there,

Yes, with all Droplets you would have root access, so once you’ve installed MySQL you will be able to configure it so that it accepts remote connections.

You can follow the steps on how to do that here:

Hope that this helps. Regards, Bobby
