Linking - Pulling Up External Database

Permalink
I just stumbled onto Concrete5 and like the tutorials. My question is this: I have a need to develop and utilize a separate MySQL relational database with a website I am planning. I assume that Concrete5 will allow me to create PHP scripts to PULL (display) information coming from a distinct and separate database (other than the database that Concrete5 resides in)? This MySQL database will be physically located in the same domain, same server, but it seems it needs to be separate and distinct from the Concrete5 database. Am I making sense explaining it ok? Any issues with Concrete5 doing that well?

Thanks,
Jerry in Michigan, USA

This is something concrete5 is designed to do, there's an established way of connecting to another database:
