Middleware Connection Settings

The Middleware Add-On is an option that allows Big Business to synchronize data with an external data source (MySQL) where it can be more readily accessed, repurposed, and manipulated. This Solution describes its connection settings (6172).

Connection Settings for the Middleware Add-On include:

• Host - enter "localhost" or an IP Address

• User - enter a user name with adequate privileges

• Password - enter the user's password

• Database - enter the name of the database you want populated

• Port (optional) - leave blank for default (3306) or enter 8889 for MAMP

• Socket - using "localhost" which is faster may require specifiying the Socket file for different distributions such as OS X Server or MAMP.
