How to connect to easyengine Site MySQL Databases on Ubuntu


#1

Hi Guys,

When I login to mysql and list the databases I do not see the wordpress databases.

Below is all I see. How can I access the mysql databases on the wordpress sites via ubuntu 18 CLI

±-------------------+
| Database |
±-------------------+
| information_schema |
| mysql |
| performance_schema |
| sys |
±-------------------+

Any guidance appreciated

EE4 uses Docker to run each db/sql service in its own container. I would suggest you install enable admin tools for the domain you want to access the database for. This will install phpmyadmin (and a bunch of other handy tools.) I think that would be the easiest way for you to view/manage your database. You can disable the admin tools when not needed.

ee admin-tools enable example.com
