How to configure Coda 2 with MySQL Databases at SiteGround

Coda 2 is an excellent tool for managing your databases. I'll show you how to Connect Coda 2 MySQL with a SiteGround Shared Hosting Database.

Coda 2 has a built-in MySQL editor that allows you to connect to a remote database and editor data, define structure, and more. I’ll use Coda 2 to connect to SiteGround MySQL in this tutorial.

SiteGround is a great host for developers with Git Integration, WordPress CLI, among many other features. It is for this reason I decided to use SiteGround for this tutorial, but the process is very similar for any other host using cPanel.

I first wrote this tutorial back in 2014, and while Coda 2 has a strong following, there are now many other code editors available that now offer MySQL functionality, whether natively or via an extension. Coding editors are very much a personal choice, so I will leave it there.
