Easily execute queries on a remote MySQL server using only HTTP.

It works by accessing a PHP script on the remote web server that executes queries based on passed in URL parameters.

The client passes a secret key to the remote script to prevent unauthorized access.

The remote script passes back the results to the requesting client using XML to marshal the data.

The class parses the results XML data returned by the server script and returns an array.

It, also, retrieves (into class variables) the number of records returned by the query and the time the query took to execute.

The server script may be used to execute MySQL queries that can be retrieved by programs written in other languages besides PHP.

Sometimes it is necessary to perform queries to databases that are in remote servers. However, firewall rules prevent accessing those databases from outside the network where the respective server machines are located.

This package provides a solution that circumvents that restriction. It uses a PHP script as a proxy in the same machine as the remote MySQL database server to perform remote queries via the Web.

This way the remote database can be queried by client scripts from remote machines. To use this solution, the client scripts can be in PHP or any other language.
