My need for remote connection is a little different to the average. I do not want to be able to host a website using xampp, just the database.
I have a website, but whilst my hosting service is great in most areas, database is weak, and can be very slow to access. So, I am hoping that I can use the database that I have set up using xamp on my home box, and have my remote website connect to it.
I understand that most of the details for the configuration are in the httpd config, but all of the documentation refers to the needs of people who wish to have full access to their site, which I do not want.
Quick question. In setting up the httpd config do I put the remote website as the host ? or do I set that, via IP address as the IP to listen on using port 3306 (sql default)? Or do I do both?
If the above is the case, do I then set my remote site to point to localhost for the database connection?
If I am totally off the beam here and wrong, how would I go about setting this so that my remote website can call my machine for its database functions only?
