I have in our IT landscape a setup that consist of several machines for different functions. For ease of understanding I will simplify this for my question. Server 1 is the web server (apache 2.0.54 and tomcat) Server 2 is the db server (mysql 4.1.14) + dns (bind 9) Server 3 is the mail server (postfix). All machines are running on Gentoo... I understand that the setup is designed for installation on 1 machine that runs all underlying functions (apache, mysql, bind, postfix). What must I do to get it installed in our environment with it distributed function setup? Regards, Pierre PS From googling I understand that installation on a Gentoo machine is already difficult. Who has accomplished that and will share the experience?
