PHP default host best practices

Threaded View
I've got my dev and production environments all setup, and the mysql
DBs working fine.  What need to do is set the mysql.default_host option
in php.ini to be one thing on dev, and something different on
production.  Unfortunately, my web host doesn't allow me to mess with

So, what's the best way to specify a different host to mysql_connect()
on dev and production.  Yes, I could manually edit the variable
everything I FTP, but I'd rather not.

Should I use a global variable in a separate include file?  Other

I usually use an include file in which I define this type of settings.
In case of the database host it's usually localhost though, unless you
run the database server on a seperate server.
