I'd like to know if would be possible to add a remote database option field for the bridge connection mode.

We have low internet coverage so we need the php mysql bridge connection to syncronize but we'd like to use a local mySQL server for the Store Manager local database instead of the embedded one.

That's because we plan to use at least two LAN computers to work with Store Manager.

One computer with Store Manager and bridge connection to the internet remote database (and the local mySQL server as a local database instead of embedded) would act as a "store manager local server"

The second Store Manager with direct connection to the local mySQL database to be able to work simultaneously on LAN and use the bridge to post the changes to internet once a day. Ultimatelly this is our goal, so any alternative you might find more suitable would be appreciated.

Hello Petete

Thank you for your interest.

We are not planning to add the possibility to restore database that you received using Get at your localhost.
At the moment you can do it manually.
You can create 2 connections: 1 - to your live store and 2 - to your localhost.
Preform Get data from web, create the backup, switch connection and restore your backup to your localhost.

Let us know if you have more questions
