Hi there! I am a bit of a newbie connecting to databases over the internet, so I hope someone can give me with some clear guidence on how to move ahead:
I want to be able to query a remote mySQL database from my C# Application. The mySQL database is located on server that has SSL enabled.I have managed to make a connection using mysql connector .net 5, but of course this is completly insecure.
My application could conceivably be running on a large number of machines (i.e. 50>), so my solution will have to take into account multiple users from changing locations.
Is connecting to a remote mySQL database from c# with ssl possible and secure enough? Is it enough to send requests via https, or is this only for browser based apps?
