Unable to make a connection to hosting provider database for MySQL, PostgreSQL, or SQL Server

Many hosting providers provider users access to databases such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, or Microsoft SQL Server, but do not allow remote connections to those databases. They force users to use web-based tools to connect to the databases.

Also, in the case of SQL Server, some ISPs block the common port for SQL Server, port 1433, because of a virus that used port 1433 in an exploit.

In these cases, connecting to the databases using traditional means is not possible. RazorSQL provides PHP bridges for MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQL Server, and an ASP bridge for SQL Server. So, if your web host provides you with either a PHP or ASP web server, you can then use the bridges to connect to the database.

See the following links for more information on the ASP and PHP bridges
