How do I connect to database?

Visit Settings Page to set database connection properties.

  • host name
  • database name
  • database username
  • database password
  • database type
  • charset
  • server root

What is SERVER ROOT in Database Connection Setting in the setting page?

SERVER_ROOT, formerly known as ABS_PATH, represents the absolute URL to the phpGrid library folder on the web server. This value tells your script where to find phpGrid library on the web server.

For instance, if the URL to get to the phpGrid is, or http://localhost/phpGrid, the SERVER_ROOT should be “/phpGrid” (must include the leading forward slash character “/”);

if the URL to phpGrid is, or http://localhost/admin/phpGrid, the SERVER_ROOT should be “/admin/phpGrid“,

and so forth.
