This has bee brought up earlier, but I want to ask again. What will it take to separate the database server out of Zimbra? It's a MySQL database, not patched, a standard thing, and in larger setups you usually have a dedicated database server, of good reason. It is usually better on I/O than your general pizzabox, it may have more memory et ceterea.
Now, earlier answers to this question has been something like "Zimbra is a closed platform, don't touch it". Since Zimbra uses mostly open source software, I find this hard to beleve.
So, can someone please tell me how I can use my fat-ass database server with Zimbra instead of running it all in one place?
