    Hi there,

    I am thinking about using Remote MySql from within whm but not sure if it will give me the reults I am looking for.

    If I use the Remote MySql Setu from within whm what exaclty will this do?

    Will this turn off / disable mysql on the server and only use mysql from the one that was set up in the remote setup?

    This is what I am trying to accomplish and not sure how I need to set the server up to do so:

    I want the websites to use localhost and mysql the way they are currently.
    I also want to beable to access the databases with out needing to be logged into cpanel or through a script or through ssh tunnelling.

    I am under the assumption that if I setup Remote MySql that it will do the following and not what I want:

    Turn off localhost for mysql and access mysql on the remote mysql that was setup.

    If this is wrong or someone knows what I am trying to accomplish please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Shawn

    I haven't tried it, but that seems to be the only logical thing it would do. I mean you could always configure other mysql servers on an app by app or website by website basis. It would only make sense that the remote mysql would turn localhost into the remote server. I wish it were easy to get a cpanel setup for testing purposes, as alot of the cpanel options don't always do what you think they would.

    MySql Remote Sql

    I have found out through playing witth this, that it does indeed trun off local host and access a database elsewhere.

    Thanks for the help.
