I am very new to digital ocean and also Linux VMs, I am helping a colleague who would like to access a database, the original person who created the site/database etc, is no longer around.
I have so far managed to get into the vm and find all the code for the website, but I am at a loss on how we can actually connect to the database, there are a couple of changes they would like to make which could easily be done with access to the database.
The application is an ASPNET application and in the settings file, I have the connection string,
“User ID=adi_net;Password=*********;Server=localhost;Port=5432;Database=adi_net3;Integrated Security=true;Pooling=true;”
How is the best way to connect to this database? I have sqlworkbench installed on my own machine, is there a way to connect to it from this?
