I’m testing the possibility to connect to a Digital Ocean managed mySql instance from a Cloudflare Worker. Cloudflare provides a mySql driver for Workers, but reading the docs I understood that in order for it to work, you need to setup a Cloudflare tunnel, and that the server running mySql needs to run cloudflared in order to securely access the tunnel. Did I understand correclty? Has anyone faced this problem before, and how did you solve it?

Cloudflare recently announced
connect()which is a new API for creating TCP sockets from Cloudflare Workers. The full announcement post can be found here:
As far as I can tell from that announcement post, they’re aiming for the adding two popular MySQL drivers, mysql and mysql2, to work on Workers soon, with more to follow.
I’ve also been looking into a similar setup but for Postgres, however, the complexity of the old approach has always kept me reluctant of trying it. This will enormously simplify the whole setup!
Hope that this helps!
