Access database via a client tool
You can use a database client to access your database. We recommend TablePlus as it is compatible with all database types and versions Cleavr offers.
- Host: 127.0.0.1 (you may also need to enter a port number based on the db type)
- User: db username
- Password: db password
- Server: server ip address
- User: cleavr
- Use SSH key and point to private key on your machine - make sure you add your public key to Cleavr first
When installing databases, Cleavr locks down root access to external client tools. This is for security. To access using a client tool, make sure you have added a database user and password and use those credentials for external clients. Also, during provisioning, Cleavr creates a 'cleavr' user on the server which is not granted database access. This is also for security reasons.
