Support for AWS RDS as Remote MySQL Server
For a number of reasons it seems quite difficult to use an RDS instance as a remote server with WHM 11.42. Firstly, since ssh is required, it's not possible to set it as a remote server in WHM and use the automated transfer feature.
Even using mysql-proxy to redirect localhost requests to the RDS instance, there seem to be lots of problems doing things like creating new accounts, etc. Turning off the local mysql server was also problematic as certain functions test its status and turn it back on.
Perhaps three config options should be made available:
2) remote server
3) remote mysql server (everything done through mysql client, no ssh, no start/stop, etc)
