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.
