Setup Joomla with Remote MySQL Database

October 7th, 2011 by Regaz

If you are Installing Joomla right now.
It’s enough to Insert the Right IP in the Host Field.

If you already Installed Joomla follow:

  1. Go in your JoomlaRoot
  2. Open and Edit configuration.php

    $host = 'xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:portNumber'
    $user = 'yourMySQLUser'
    $db = 'yourDBName'
    $pass = 'yourPassword'

    Default portNumber is 3306
