MySQL Overview

There is currently no phpMyAdmin or other visual DB editor available on Stratus. It is recommended to utilize mysql-cli, or remote MySQL connection

MySQL Command Line

The database on a Mojo Stratus instance can be accessed directly via the mysql command or you can use the built-in tools n98-magerun and n98-magerun2 to use the credentials already set in local.xml or env.php of your Magento store.

Finding your database credentials

  1. Open your Stratus Control Panel, then click the MySQL section to expand it. Then open the Info section.
  2. Various details, including the database user and password will be viewable.

Connecting to the database

Using the credentials found above, you can connect directly:


Fill in the username, password, and database name (the endpoint is just mysql)

You can also use n98-magerun(2) for Magento and Magento 2 which are pre-installed on Stratus. These commands must be ran from your Magento web root (the same directory as index.php)

n98-magerun db:console
#### or run
n98-magerun2 db:console

Dropping and re-creating your database / clearing your database

Using the credentials found above, you can drop and re-create your database:

mysqladmin -h mysql -uUSERNAME -pPASSWORD drop DATABASENAME
mysqladmin -h mysql -uUSERNAME -pPASSWORD create DATABASENAME
