Connect to existing database

Unread postby bornheim » Wed Nov 10, 2021 3:07 am

Hello,

I'm completely new to nuBuilder. I installed the software, created a database and and configured access to the database. Now I can start nuBuilder.

What I am completely missing: how do I connect to an existing database? I have a pre-existing database for which I wish to build forms. How can I tell nuBuilder to use this database?

Do I have to configure access to the pre-existing database in nuconfig.php? Will that create all those zzzsys_* tables within the pre-existing daatabase?

Kind regards,
Robert

Hi Robert,

Yes, that's the way to go.
