Topic: iRedMail on existing server using other existing MySQL host
I have iRedMail working great on my own personal domain. It's been doing its job there for months with no problem. Reduced my spam by... loads.
I'm now looking to use it at my work. I want to deploy it on a server that also has existing server services running on it (many of them are custom), and I just wanted to double-check that it will not impact existing features.
Also, I'd like to use an existing MySQL server, that's not on the localhost. Having a quick look, I found conf/mysql in the install heirarchy. Is that all I need to change to use the other server? From what I can glean in scripts/config, I would have to change MYSQL_FRESH_INSTALLATION to "NO" and modify the MYSQL_SERVER.
I've also seen that regardless, functions/mysql.sh will try to restart the mysql daemon on the localhost (which doesn't bother me, because it doesn't have one).
