Default Is this possible? - 01-09-2012, 11:06 PM

Is it possible to access my database on a 000webhost hosted web server using c# desktop application?

The reason im asking is because i want to create a web site that allows scheduling on a calendar, but however i then want to create a desktop app that would access the database to retrieve and add new events etc.

000webhost in their free accounts, does not allow external connections to the mysql servers.
It is not possible with free accounts.

You could set up PHP pages to relay database information.

Use cURL or some library to get a page online.

Have a PHP page with validation, user/pass, and it could respond to your query with results, maybe in json, as a sort of workaround. It's also easier.
