Connecting to Your Database

First time setup

PopSQL connects directly from your computer to your database server. You’ll need to know your database type, host, port, username, and password to get connected. If you’re part of an organization, someone else may have shared a connection with the team already, but you’ll still need the username and password for security reasons. Your database username and password are stored securely in your computer’s keychain. If your company has a VPN, please make sure you’re connected.

Managing/switching connections

To manage or switch connections, look for the dropdown near the top center of the app. As a shortcut, you can press Cmd+3 to open the connection manager. Screenshot of managing your connections
