Hello :)

You can configure a remote MySQL server via:

"WHM Home » SQL Services » Setup Remote MySQL server"

This will automatically disable MySQL on your local machine. The option is documented at:

Setup Remote MySQL Server

You should not uninstall MySQL completely from the local machine. Is there a specific reason you would like to do this?

Thank you.

You could configure the MySQL RPMs as unmanaged with a command such as:

Code:
# /scripts/update_local_rpm_versions --edit target_settings.MySQL51 unmanaged
Replace "MySQL51" with the version of MySQL currently installed locally (e.g. MySQL50, MySQL55). Then, you can manually remove the specific MySQL RPMs that are not used and cPanel will not automatically reinstall it.

Thank you.
