    How to access the database in the server from PC?

    Hi,
    My phpmyadmin is inside the server. I want to connect my database from my remote PC to the database in the server using php. I would greatly appreciate if someone can suggest a way to connect the database remotely in windows platform.
    Thank you.

    One way that I can think of that you could try would be to install WAMP on your PC and have it try and access the database.

    If it's not your server, the server owners have to allow remote access to the db, and you have to find out from them what you need to do to connect remotely. If it's your server, you need to configure the dbms to allow remote users and open the dbms network port(s) through any firewalls.
