I am quite new to app development in nextcloud environment, but currently i am stuck:
I am developing an app which needs access to another mysql server (readonly access to the data maintained by a different application). How do I create a DB connection to this server?
Accessing the nextcloud server is not a problem and works fine for me. From this point the developer documentation is fine for me.
So far, in other (non-nextcloud) applications I was using PDO library, but the statement “new PDO(…)” for opening a new database connection results in an error.
Alternatively I need to retrieve a IDBConnection to this server, but where can I configure hostname, db name, db user and db password for this separate connection?
I hope I am clear with my description. Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance!
