hi folks,

i have written a nice little php page that submits employee timesheets to a phpMyAdmin database. Currently the DB is stored on my Mac using MAMP with address localhost:8889. the username is root.
its all running great from php.

the long term goal is to have the database hosted online and i will need to connect to it from mac and windows machines.

for now my issue is i want to connect to the localhost db from libreoffice ( and excel from a windows machine) and be able to query to the spreadsheet.
i have no idea how to begin to do this. im getting asked all sorts of things like "datasource url" and "driver class". i have no idea how to fill in these fields. i have only a blank spreadsheet at the moment. is there a tutorial on this or any guidance somewhere!
