data base driven website

I have just built a website using Wix. Unfortunately they do not allow for any direct link to my database (SQL), sitting on my own server.[They do allow for copying and pasting of html code or website url onto a iframe]. Does anybody know a clever way of integrating my SQL database to my Wix site?( I want to avoid forcing members to my website having to log in twice if possible, which seems to me as a possible solution.) Alternatively, does anybody know a website builder, free or otherwise,that does allow such a connection to one's own database?

You can use PHP to connect to a MySQL database running on a different server. That's the good news. The bad news is that you can't do it with Wix - it doesn't support PHP.

I suggest you bite the bullet and redevelop your site using something else. Take a look at these options
