Support » Installing WordPress » can you have a DB on another server??

  • Hey folks, real silly question here. I have room with my current host for 50+ DataBases and I want to use wordpress in my office. can I install wordpress on a local server and have the wp-config file look towards a database with my host? If that is an option does anyone know how I would write the WP-config file for this ?

  • That would be up to your host. If they allow remote linking to the database server(s) (some don’t for security reasons) then, yes you can, simply put in the appropriate IP address for the server. If they don’t allow it, then there’s not much you can do.
