    Hi guys,

    I'm starting my board from scratch following some issues with my previous host and a lack of interest over the topics we were following before.
    I'm at the point where I'm creating the database and I would like to know what would be the best choice for me there :

    Is MySQL on the same box? (If you're not sure, the answer is likely yes): Allow local connections only
    MySQL on separate box? Allow remote connections from: Put in the dns or IP of the MySQL server

    Okay, I see, thanks !

    Question tho, can I change that easily in the future? Like if I decide in a year or two to move the db?

    Set to allow local connections only, if youre setting everything up in Plesk you don't need to worry about the others.

    Yep. You'll just have to edit config.php to point at the new db.
