    I have my WordPress installations configured to use a remote MySQL server. I couldn't find where I can set this in the cPanel install of WordPress.

    I know I can / have installed WordPress manually via FTP but I was hoping to save a little time

    Thanks

    I would think you'd set it in the same place, in the wp-config.php

    Are you hoping to do this "during setup" instead of after it's installed, is that it? If yes, I'm not aware of any way to add the details for a remote database server when installing a wordpress via cPanel Site Software.

    Thank you for your reply - I am aware that I can configure it in wp-config.php

    Your question/statement is exactly correct. I am manually setting up the database on a remote server and I want to be able to specify that database during the install process.

    I assumed that I could not modify the cPanel Site Software script, but I figured I would ask
