Display external database content

Permalink
I feel like I'm missing something. One of the most basic actions is to display several rows of database content. It's a few lines of PHP.

I cannot find a block that does or supports this basic need. I must not be asking the right question.
My specific need is to be able to display in a scrollable or pagable list the the content of some database rows. This database is updated by another application.
Can someone point me?

If you need to connect to a different database than the one concrete5 is running on, you can find some info here, under the section "connecting to other databases"

I'm also having difficulty accessing a second database. The link given in the last reply now gives "page not found". I assume this has happened because of the database layer changes in concrete 5.7? Does anyone know where the equivalent documentation is?
