External MySQL host, authentication


#1

Hi there.

Maybe there is an obvious answer to this but I don’t seem to be able to find it.

If I intend to use EasyEngine to deploy Wordpress sites, however I want to use an external MySQL host, how to I configure the MySQL ‘administrator’ user / password in EasyEngine to create the databases and users on the external MySQL host?

There don’t seem to be any entries in ee.conf to deal with this.

Any pointers?

To configure the MySQL ‘administrator’ user / password in EasyEngine to create the databases and users on the external MySQL host save the username and password in ~/.my.cnf
