MySQL Connection

MySQL Connection

IMTanukiIMTanuki Posts: 6Questions: 2Answers: 0

Trying to find a specific example of a connection to a MySQL view (or just a table) as the source for a DataTable report.

  1. Can anyone point me to docum that shows this/
  2. The only references to MySQL connections seem to be in the Editor docum - is it necessary to use Editor to create reports?

Thanks

    Hi @IMTanuki ,

    This YouTuve video shows how to set up serverSide with MySQL. Hope that does the trick,

    Cheers,

    Colin

    Hi @colin

    The link goes to DataTables' reference section. I've searched on youtube and quite a few videos out there...is there any one in particular that addresses connectivity to MySQL. btw, I'm trying to embed a report in a WordPress site.

    Thx!

    Sorry, the link fell off - here it is. I'm not sure what you mean by report, but hopefully this will do the trick.

    Just what the doctor ordered! Many thanks!

    Just by observation - seems like a separate interface needs to be written in php for each table or view to be exposed in datatables. I have a fairly complex database with approx 20 views...so, looks like one php interface per view.

    I'm wondering if someone has written a generalized interface that will accept an SQL string as a parameter...

    in the short term, though, the solution in this video works fine!
