Connecting with dbForge Studio


dbForge Studio version 9.0.391 (Windows) was used to prepare these instructions. When using other versions, these instructions may require adjustment.

To connect to a database service on MariaDB SkySQL through dbForge Studio:

  1. Determine the connection information for your MariaDB SkySQL database service:


    Where to find it

    General tab

    Fully Qualified Domain Name in the Service Details view

    General tab

    Read-Write Port or Read-Only Port in the Service Details view

    General tab

    Default username in the Service Credentials view, or the username you created

    General tab

    Default password in the Service Credentials view, the password you set on the default user, or the password for the user you created

    Security tab
    Authority Certificate

    Path to the skysql_chain.pem file (Download)

  2. Create a new Database Connection.

  3. In the "General" tab:

    • Fill in the connection information for your service.

    • Remember to specify the port, as MariaDB SkySQL does not use the standard client port.

  4. In the "Security" tab:

    • Select the "Use security protocol" checkbox, and the "SSL" button.

    • In the "Authority Certificate" text box, enter the path to the skysql_chain.pem file (Download).
