How to Manage Your Databases Using the Integrated Cloudways Database ManagerMarch 27, 2014


In this KB

  • Using the Cloudways Database Manager


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

Note: Cloudways Database Manager is not suitable for managing large databases (i.e. larger than 200MB). To manage large databases, please use other Cloudways supported methods such as MySQL remote connections or SSH tunnel for MySQL clients.

Step 1: Go to Application Management

Log into the Cloudways Platform with your credentials. Click on Applications in the top menu bar and then select your target application from the list.

Step 2: Launch the Database Manager

Under Application Management, click on Access Details and check the MySQL Access option.

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).
