Hot to use Databases for your server
- 4 min read
Databases can be used by certain plugins to allow for a more efficient, organized method of storing large amounts of data. Common plugins that can utilize MySQL databases are Dynmap, CoreProtect, and LuckPerms.
Adding MySQL Databases
From the Godlike Panel select the Databases tab on the navigation bar.
Click New Database to start the process.
In the first box, you assign the database a name. In the second, you can specify what IP addresses can connect to the database. We recommend leaving it as the default wildcard of
%, which will allow all IP addresses to connect.
Once you have created the database, it will appear in your database list. From here you can view basic details, advanced details, import to the database, export from the database, or delete the database.
Importing MySQL Databases through the panel
To import a database you first have to create a new database in your Godlike server. Once it is created, you can then click on the import button which will open a prompt. Fill in the form with the database connection details from the remote MySQL server. Keep in mind that database imports are limited to 5GB.
Importing an .SQL database dump through HeidiSQL
Keep in mind that not all .SQL files such as sqlite and others can't be imported into MySQL.
To import an .SQL database dump through HeidiSQL first connect to your database, select your database then click on the File menu option and select Run SQL file, this will run your .SQL file in HeidiSQL and should import it into your database.
