Why'd u need that? If mysql is only used for phpbb, then u don't need to use other machine unless u're hosting zillions of data.
first ur complaining its too slow..i offer a suggestion to speed things up and u quash it...yeesh!
no particular reason...guess when i was first starting to talk to saith aobut this kinda stuff, he planted the "one machine per server" seed as in, ftp is it own machine, firewall is its own machine, db is its own machine, httpd is it own machine, etc... plus since im using older hw, it would offload things somewhat...and the whole learning/egghead factors... ...was just an idea
actually i was thinking about using the mini-itx machine and making that the new barn, since its a 1Ghz (C3) with 512MB ram, in a nice, small, quiet setup
