How to get started


#1

Hello everyone. I’m trying to make a REST API using a MySQL database. I have several restrictions because I’m using a shared server(I don’t have access to ssh). I’m pretty new to this. So how do I get started with Dreamfactory?

The easiest way to get started is to use our hosted system to try out the product. You can register here: https://www.dreamfactory.com/user/register
The hosted system is intended for “kicking the tires” and not for production applications.

Your mysql host should have help documents available on making external connections. These will be valuable for helping you get your MySQL service connected.

To get started you’ll also want to familiarize yourself with our documentation: https://github.com/dreamfactorysoftware/dsp-core/wiki
