Confused on how to create a web server + remote database server


#1

If I install EE on my server, it will create automatically a DB for the wordpress.

Then I add another server do MySQL only and follow this tutorial: https://easyengine.io/docs/remote-mysql/

But when I change my EE to point at another server for DB, the DB will be empty. Won’t include the tables that wordpress require and so on. How this will actually work?

Am I making any sense? :slight_smile:

Thanks

You’ll need to backup/export the database, and then import it on the new server. Is that what you meant? :slight_smile:

Hi @marty! I found the solution. First in one server set the remote database. Then on the second server simply install EE and the stack (ee stack install) and then you follow that tutorial before install wordpress with EE.
