FAQ: Can I host the database on a different server to the Administration System?

Yes, you can either install the MySQL database on a local (same server) or a remote one.

For the remote option you need to specify the remote MySQL address that needs to be accessible from the server.

You need to make sure you configure the appropriate access rights for the Safeguard administration system application to talk to the database.

If you want to change from localhost to a remote database or vice-versa then the own server must be installed again as these settings cannot be changed on the fly.
