Vapor Cloud databases are build to be supported by Vapor Cloud applications. So you can't create a database server without an application. You can though either connect to the database from another hosting provider, or from your local computer.
Connect from your local computer¶
To connect from your local computer, you can get the connect information with:
vapor cloud db credentials
This will show information for all environments.
If you want to connect through the CLI (mysql, psql or mongo) you can just run:
vapor cloud db login
this is a shortcut to run the login command on your local computer.
