I have a website powered by mySQL, written in .NET - with Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express as the SQL management software.
I am looking to develop an add on application for this website in PHP - so would make it on a seperate server (php) - but this new application will need access to the SQL (or at least aspects of it).
Will it be as simple as making the php site connect to the database remotely (so instead of localhost connect, it connects to the database at www.domain.com/blaablaa)
Although of course, the database isn't stored at domain.com/blaa since it's somewhere in root level.
I figure that because we're connected SQL, it shouldn't matter that the two sites are in different languages...
So I guess the question is - how easy would it be to connect, using PHP, to this remote SQL database, on the .NET server?
Any thoughts, most appreciated
