What should the database host be for SlickStack setup wizard
- This topic is empty.
Here is the prompt:
Choose database host (e.g. IP) without port: 127.0.0.1
it should be
127.0.0.1 which is the localhost (loopback) IP address unless you are using a remote database or something
Many of managed (remote) database providers these days are using a unique CNAME instead of IP address so you can input that, I tested and it works fine with SlickStack
not necessarily CNAME but you understand my meaning I think 😆
