Short answer: you can't. And why would you create the database using a feature? If you are creating an installer anyway, create the DB there using a db create script or a custom seetup action.

You must not have changed it. When you would have created Sharepoint would have set the default value http://sp2010-wfe:80 initailly. Since the Central admin url for you is ...
