I am developing locally on my computer, using my own Apache server with PHP configured.
My database however is remotely located on an Oracle 11g Database Server. We were also given a separate remote server for hosting our
.php files, however only FTP access has been provided there. Development is far too slow waiting for the FTP connection to push.
So I decided to develop locally, but still use the remote DB server. Unfortunately that gives me an error.
Not sure how—or where—to integrate tunnelling.
Do I add something to the
HOST in my PHP file, or do I encapsulate my whole environment over SSH?
