    Hi,

    is it a silly idea to have the wordpress files on one server and the database on another (ahem, not my idea)? And how should I do it?

    Thanks in advance.

    you can do that
    some folks use mysql services for this
    just make sure you have the relevant info for the mysql server in the wp-config.php file and you are good to go.
    Just follow the guide as normal:
