How to configure remote MySQL for cPGuard database

cPGuard uses MySQL database to store the data and by default, it is stored in a database named cpanel_cpguard on the local server. If you want to use a remote MySQL database to store cPGuard data, you can create  the file "/usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/cpguard/includes/db.ini" with the following entries

; Database connection parameters

host = localhost
database = DB Name

username = cpguser
password = password

Make sure to change the values accordingly for each field.

By default, the file is not created and if you create it, the file should contain valid credentials. Also, make sure to grant ALL privileges for the user/password  [ given in db.ini file ] on the remote MySQL server.
