This a general type question, because i’m not sure if this is the best possible solution or even if its something people even normally do.
So i have a plugin that i have developed and i’m wanting it to hit a database because its going to pull the information that a hosted website is submitting to a database. Now obviously it needs the general information: host, port, database, username, password.
so here is my question: Do plugin developers normally use their own plugin databases, or is there some other method i’m not understanding as to hosting this information? basically, if someone downloads my plugin in, fresh out of the box, it should be pulling data from the plugins database correct?
We are aiming for a web interface for a particularly MC feature, of which information from the website is stored on the database, and when a command is run, that information is retrieved, and then used.
I’m starting to think that i may be going about this the wrong way, so any advice or tips or just general “hey your doing this wrong” is totally OK with me. I’m used to plugin development, but web integration is a bit less familiar of territory to me.
PS. i’m not asking for “how do i access a database via plugin.” i know how that is done.
