I have xampp installed with Apache Web Server, Mercury, Ruby, PHP & MySQL for the purpose of development.
My development needs access to a MySQL database and as i am using MySQL running in Xampp i can easily achieve that. The problem is that if i need to perform development outwith my PC (switching to my laptop for example,) i would need to install xampp with the same above.
To avoid duplication, how can i access the MySQL in xampp remotely from my laptop? where the main xampp is installed on my desktop PC. I'm so sure i've seen articles on web about this and it can be done.
Guidance or step-by-step procedures would be helpful.
