Is it possible to connect WHM to remote MySQL server without ssh? Thing is I am hosting WHM on Amazon EC2 and want to move all MySQL databases to Amazon RDS, but WHM by default supports connection via SSH which is not the case with RDS.

I am not very familiar with cPanel internals and after unsuccessful browsing around I would like to know if anyone here tried configuring cPanel (WHM) to connect to remote MySQL server instead of localhost. And if it is possible at all even in shell level.

  • This question does not appear to be about server, networking, or related infrastructure administration within the scope defined in the help center.
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about working with a service provider's management interface, such as cPanel. – HopelessN00b Jan 13 '15 at 21:51

If you check out the documentation here:

It covers how to do a manual remote MySQL server setup. Its a pretty straitforward process.
