For on-premise installation, you need to enable pdo_pgsql extension to enable postgreSQL database connection, check php.ini


Ensure that all information is correct, tap "Submit" button, DbFace will use the provided information to try to connect to the database, and create the connection if successfully.

We recommend you create a sperated username/password for dbface to connect to your database, for MySQL:

create user 'thenewusername'@'' identified by 'thenewuserpassword';
grant all privileges on thedatabase.* to 'thenewusername'@''


If you just creating query applications which only access the databases, please create readonly database users for the databases.

Be careful

Please update your server's firewall to allow DbFace to connect to your database server. If you've got any issues, please contact us to get free support.
