This wiki page gives written instructions. For those that are more visually-oriented here’s a 6min screencast that steps you through the process of exposing the MySQL database of a SugarCRM JumpBox.

In this video we’ll expose the db, add some sample contacts to Sugar and then browse the contacts table in the db using the free Sequel Pro graphical database client.

Here’s the sample contacts file used in the video.
