    Is it possible to install ISPConfig3 on a Debian 6 system and then have the database mysql running on a windows 2003 server.

    Would this have to be done from a fresh install.
    or can we change some setting and transfer the database we have already.

    We would like to move the database we have to a windows 2003 where its just running mysql and leave everything else on the debian 6 server.

    Debian 6 on IP
    Windows Server on IP

    That is no problem as long as you allow remote access on the new MySQL server and change the MySQL settings in all your configuration files.

    Hi falko

    Cheers for the reply

    when you say "change the MySQL settings in all your configuration"
    will this be inside ISPConfig or the applications installed on the server ie. phpnuke in the server connection config file:
    $dbhost = 'localhost';
    it would become
    $dbhost = 'IP to the server';
    $dbhost = 'Computername';

    Also phpmyadmin what changes would need to be done.

    this is a project I am working on at home just to see if I can do it.

    You can use either the ip addres or the fully qualified hostname of the mysql server for all applications that connect to mysql. Please be ware that your setup might be much slower then a setup that uses a mysql instance on localhost as described in the ispconfig installation guides.
