i had a wordpress plugin made for me and right now it shares the wordpress database. i tried going through the php and figuring out if i could change it to an external database but i cant find it. i was hoping maybe someone here can take a look at it for me. i want it to use database.mywebsite.com format instead of locally hosted database. i originally asked someone to convert it to use an externally hosted text file but he never got back to me. now i know it would be even easier for me to keep it in an external database. im just not sure how to change all the $wpdb entries to = database.mydomain.com and tell it what user/pass to use for that database without it being clear text.
