Subject Local access to database
Author Lester Caine
OK it's been probably 10 years since I played with some of this stuff. SO I need
a bit of a sanity check.

I'm running PHP most of the time, although the old windows stuff is still
working as well. Everything runs off network connections, and I don't normally
have any problems, but one site has asked if we can send SMS messages for the
next days appointments. No problem, I have a PHP script which generates the XML
file to go to the SMS messaging service. Now just need to 'schedule' it, but
when running the script from the command line it fails as it can't find the
network :(

No I should be able to access the database using a local connection? This is on
the main server. Question is how ... and will that cause any problems with the
main web server side?
