I changed my database configuration to a MySQL connection in the project settings but the app still uses the internal database when I run as a free app in the Mendix cloud. It only connects to the MySQL database when I run the app locally. Is this a limitation of the free version?

The configurations you add in the modeler are only for the local runtime.
The sandbox database type isn't customizable. a paid node's database is.
If you want to run free app using mysql, you can deploy to pivotal web services. I think they have an option to bind a mysql service to your app.
