If you have an existing MySQL database somewhere (e.g. on a computer in Arts) you can access it remotely from Homepage using Perl or PHP. You can also contact the ICT Help Desk to have an empty MySQL database created for you. While you can use databases on homepage, ICT will only create an empty MySQL database; if you run into problems, support for databases is not available.
Once you have a mysql database on homepage, you can connect to it using phpMyAdmin at: https://homepage.usask.ca/phpmyadmin/. If you use the web interface, you need to login twice, first with your NSID, then with your database username and password.
If you have an existing Postgres database somewhere (e.g. on a computer in Arts), you can access it remotely from Homepage using Perl or PHP.
You will need to write (or install) a Perl or PHP script to use either MySQL or Postgres databases.
