Hi Tim,

I ask this question, expecting the answer will be "no", but is it possible to connect to an ElevateDB database without using the EWB Server?

Can you clarify in what scope ?

You can always write your own back end (web) server or use one of the
other edb components (i.e. odbc) with something else.

However from EWB app perspective (javascript in browser) there is no way
to have DB access except thru a server that has endpoints app can talk to.

Do you mean by just using a different web server ?  If so, then yes, it is possible.  However, you'll need to implement your own API that you can call from the EWB application for database access, etc., and much of the built-ins in the Server Manager in the IDE won't work with your API, including server applications and deployment.

What are you looking to do ?  Perhaps I can give a better answer in that case.

Hi Tim and Raul,

I was just considering what options there were.  I'm going to go for a Windows VPS so it's all good.

Thanks.
