updating a remote MySQL db via Dreamweaver

The MySQL db is up remotely, as well as at localhost. It all works, thanks for helping me get there! Apparently, there is a way to update the remote db, after changes locally, but without having to export / import the sql every time. My Dynamic db Connection is set up with both local and remote info in it.

Can you advise, please, how to trigger, in Dreamweaver (CC), a relatively straightforward update of the remote db? Perhaps similar to 'putting' a file? Thanks, David

there is not a way to do that without exporting and importing. Dreamweaver does not have a way to synch the local and remote database.

Thanks, Jason. May I learn, then, the function of the Dynamic Connection from WebAssist, in DW? Perhaps what it does is put different "connections," on locally and on remotely, so that both versions continue to have correct though different connections, even if the conn file is 'put'?

yes that is correct, it allows you to use one connection file that dynamically determines which connection to use based on the URL

I realize I should also check: Do we know if, for instance, BBEdit, or some other IDE, has this simpler update capability for a remote db, even if DW does not?

Thanks again.

You need to use a MySQL GUI Tool to manage the database, like PHPMyAdmin, not a text editing program like BBEDit.

I should have been a bit more detailed. I have it from someone who seems to know (but not here now) saying there are tools that are more streamlined than export / import. Of course as soon as you say text editor, I should have ruled such things out initially.

I am wondering whether some of the MySQL GUI tools may go there, may have more a put / get capability. As far as I have seen, phpMyAdmin is an export / import tool. But I don't know other tools, which are out there.

And we can live with export / import if that is what there is, of course. Thanks.

There are many other MySQL Gui Tools out there, though I'm not aware of any that go beyond Import and Update.

I would ask the person that you mention above for more details.

You are right. I should do that.

Thanks.
