In cooperation with ONID and Central Web Services, we are now offering MySQL database access for personal student use. This service will only work from your personal web space through a cgi script.

To get started you will need to login to your ONID ( account and click on the "Web Database" option. If you haven't already created your database, you should do so now. If you've already created it, you will see the information would need to connect to the database (hostname, database name, username and password).

For more information on using CGI from your Engineering account, see these documents:

If you have any issues connecting to the database or with your scripts, please contact support, not ONID support.
