Just curious what the best suggestion is as I try to get a better understanding of how to best use ee.
Obviously I want to take advantage of my VPS hosts free offloaded mysql offering but they only allow databases to be created from their web panel for security purposes.
As I can tell it would seem the steps to use this would be:
- Create site in ee - ee site create mysite.com --opts
- Change wp-config from ee generated db info to VPS host’s db info manually
- Delete the ee created db for the newly created site
- Run ee sync?
Am I over complicating things?
Additionally, I need to consider also that the user created during the site create process is also invalid, and the fact that mysql is still running locally on my server even if its not being used, it still needs to be monitored so logs and stuff don’t get out of control. I assume I need to keep it installed and running for ee to work properly?
Naturally it would be cool if I could tell the ee site create script to ask for my offsite db info during the creation process and bypass all those nasty steps above. Is this possible? Thx =)
