A have set up a cpanel with remote mysql server.
My demo config:
centos VPS with cpanel WHM (demo)
the configuration is OK, it works.
We have got 200 customers, and we will to change to cpanel.
The MYSQL server is on a solaris zone. It is possible to make the remote connecting with it. I will import the 200 users MYSQL databases to cpanel, with privileges (user settings). The mail/web dir a will import manuali to cpanel server(copy-paste-setuser:group).
