OK, I appreciate this has no doubt been asked before, but trying to find a definitive answer in the sea of search post hits is a nightmare!
I'm setting up 2 new dedicated servers to replace my current single server (moving hosts).
One was going to be for email / mysql / dns and the other just for apache.
I really want to seperate the mysql and apache systems onto two seperate servers to distribute the load a bit.
From reading the info for Zimbra, it says you can't use any existing services (i.e. mysql / apache) on the server because Zimbra will replace them. That's fine - my question is, can I setup mysql to host other databases afterwards?
Mail Accounts wise, we're going to have a couple of hundred tops, nothing major, so I don't see the load as being ridiculous, but I'd rather save the £80pm another dedicated server would cost simply to run mysql!
