Every now and then we see users having database issues with RadioDJ.

Then in the next sentence they then mention they are attempting to use a remote MySQL database instance.

STOP IT! Trying to run RadioDJ on remote database is a really bad idea, All you need is the slightest connection problem or packet loss and bang it will freeze or even crash the program & believe me that’s the last thing you need when running a stream”

A database running on the same machine (or a database server on an internal network) is a lot better for performance among other things.

If you need to access the database from outside (i.e request page) then all you need to do is make sure that port 3306 is open on your computer firewall and router configuration.

If you do run RadioDJ with a remote database please don’t start kicking and screaming because something isn’t working right.

Don’t say we didn’t try and warn you…
