How to manage your databases using the integrated Cloudways Database ManagerMarch 27, 2014

You can use the Cloudways Database Manager to manage your applications databases from within the console.

NOTE: Cloudways Database Manager is not suitable to manage large databases (i.e. larger than 200MB). To manage large databases, please use Mysql Workbench or a similar tool.

STEP 1: Go to Application Management

Tap on “Applications” on the top menu bar and then select your target application from the list.

Launch database
To launch the manager, click on “Launch Database Manager”.

The Database Manager is secured using a self-signed certificate. Although it is perfectly valid, this will generate a warning on your browser that you can safely ignore (don’t ignore it when connecting to other sites unless you know what you are doing).
