Bridge connection to MySQL database with PHP


I have a web hosting including MySQL database with some data I would like to analyze in Qlik Cloud. However, I'm not able to connect to the MySQL remotely, from other place than localhost (otherwise I have to pay extra money).

I was wondering to make some kind a PHP bridge to select the data from MySQL in structured form and then connect to this bridge with Qlik. But there may be also sensitive data I don't want to make readable for everyone.

I can restrict the connection only for IPs used by Qlik Cloud but this won't solve the problem because the data will be readable for anybody with Qlik account anyway.

Does anybody have a money-saving idea? Thanks a lot!

Best regards,
Martin Simecek
