- 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).
Step 3: Database Manager
The Cloudways Database Manager will open in a new tab and you can start working with your database.
That’s it. You have now learned how to make the best use of the Cloudways Database Manager.
