I set up a database on cartoDB.

I'm trying to use MATLAB to connect to the database using Database Explorer. I've downloaded the PostgreSQL driver.

MATLAB asks for connection Parameters:

Server Name Port Number Username Password Database

What specific information should be in these fields to connect MATLAB to my database. I'm pretty sure the username and password I have covered, but not the other 3.

CartoDB doesn't support direct connections to user databases, so you'd need to use our SQL API in order to connect both: http://docs.cartodb.com/cartodb-platform/sql-api.html
