    Hi,

    I'm new to ispconfig.
    I'm gonna setup a multiple server configuration, I want to have different services on different machines.
    ispconfig manual says to install on db on every box, and they will keep sinchronized with the master. Ok. But, what if want just ONE db (i'm talking about ispconfig's config db)? Why can't simply any server point to that db?

    More db's, more point of failure, more managent, etc.

    Should be possible, during ispconfig install (php -q install.php) choose as mysql server hostname the same for all machines?

    Thank you, sorry for my basic english.

    Cris

    Thats not supported and it would add a single point of failure.

    No, if you do that, your sytsem will not work. Its a system requirement for ispconfig to have a local mysql server on every node. if you sue light nodes, you can strip down mysql to use very little memory by disabling innodb and bdb features.
