I am developing a plugin that reads data from an External database.
I have been able to do an external database read by modifying a plugin and using the PDO prepare fetch and execute statements outside of the extends plugin class but still residing in the plugin.
The only solution I have found is setting the variables outside of the class and putting the functions outside of the class (and I suspect this not the correct way to do things).
However, since I am a novice at oop and vanilla, when I try to put it inside extends plugin class I get a PDO error (if I remember correctly it said can't find PDO).
Can someone guide me through an example, give me a few tips, or point me to a plugin where I can achieve using PDO statement to an External Database (not vanilla) to execute some prepare, execute and fetch commands).
Thanks for any assistance on this.
Monetary Donations will be appreciated if you use my plugins. Thanks in Advance.
