WordPress connects to a MySQL database, so if you have a website that is hosted on WordPress, you can display your data in Grow. After you connect your database to Grow, you can then access the database and pull data from plugins such as WooCommerce or Forms. This article will show you how to connect your WordPress database.

First, download and install FileZilla at this link: https://goo.gl/12dTJ 

You’ll need to choose the file that works with your operating system.

Next, sign into your WordPress engine (or whoever is hosting your website). Go find your website’s IP address---you’ll need it later.

After that, reach out to Grow support and have them whitelist Grow’s IP addresses. You can find those on our help article here.

Next, while still in your WordPress engine, create an SFTP login on Live (or use a previous SFTP connection). If you don’t know how to do this, check out this article here.

Use the same article to learn how to get the information you need to connect your database in FileZilla. You will need the following:

  • Host
  • Username
  • Password
  • Port

Next, connect to FileZilla.

From FileZilla, download the wp-config.php file.

After you have downloaded it, open the file in a text editor and grab the following info:

  • DB_NAME
  • DB_USER
  • DB_PASSWORD

Then you can copy the information and paste it into Grow. You can use the image below for help.

Press submit, and you’re done!
