Hi All,

My client has a need to connect to an existing product SQL database that is hosted remotely to the website database. Has any one got any pointers for doing this within the SS framework?

The current site is running on a linux server with PHP and mySQL.

Any help would be appreciated I am yet to do this at all, let alone within SS.

Thanks in advance.
