Nextcloud vers BDD externe

Hello, I would like to know for the establishment of a project if Nextcloud allows the connection to an external database (Mysql or other …), and if yes how to make this connection?

Thank you for your reply

Yes you can do it.
First of all your nextcloud server should be able to speak with the distant mysql instance.

Where is your distant mysql instance ? Inside the same LAN than the nextcloud server ?

It’s quite dangerous to talk with an over the lan mysql instance if it’s not behind a VPN.

When you start the install wizard of nextcloud you will have to write where the mysql server is :
Address : localhost or example) or 52.45.168.XXX
Login : mylogin
Password : my password
Port : 3306 (default) or something else
