WebDB: MySQL Database Service
What is WebDB?
WebDB provides a MySQL database service for UVM affiliates. MySQL is a highly popular relational database server used by millions of companies worldwide. It provides most of the features of database servers such as Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, or DB2, while often performing much faster.
Most databases on WebDB are used for dynamic web applications such as blogs, news sites, and forums, but you can use your database however you like.
WebDB is built for service stability, with redundant disks and data replication to another server to which service can be migrated in moments if necessary. Daily database backups and real-time query logs allow for databases to be restored to a previous point in time, should information be accidentally lost or corrupted.
MySQL database libraries are available for all popular programming languages,
as well as ODBC-compliant applications such as Microsoft Access. Once you
have a database, you can access it by connecting to the server
webdb.uvm.edu on network port
3306 (the default for
MySQL), using the username and password you have been given. WebDB is only
accessible from the UVM campus network or a VPN connection into the campus
network. Depending on how you requested your account, there may be additional
access restrictions to your data.
