Changing Database Host (2 posts)

    Hi,

    My MySQL databases are stored on a separate host to my HTML files. My webhost is going to migrate my MySQL databases from one database host to another database host (going from MySQL 4 to MySQL 5). The logins and tables will all be preserved, but the database host name will change. Is it simply a matter of updating the host name in my wp-config after the migration or is there something else I'll need to do?

    Thanks,
    Nick
