Hi. I am a newbie to Virtualmin and need a steer please.
We are an established small hosting provider. We have decided to migrate to Virtualmin. We started by setting up a new dedicated ‘mail’ server and moving our email-only customers onto that which has worked very well so far (a few weeks). We have now set up a separate ‘shared’ server in the same data centre and installed Virtualmin Pro on it yesterday. The idea currently is that the ‘mail’ server will only deal with mail and the ‘shared’ server will only do the website hosting. So if we have a customer who owns example.net, the email for example.net would be on our ‘mail’ server and www.example.net would be on our ‘shared’ server. I appreciate that Virtualmin could theoretically handle all of it on one installation, but our gut feeling is that they should be separate for ease of administration and to spread loadings.
- Is this a good approach?
- Assuming that it is, when creating a new VS on the ‘shared’ server, should I uncheck ‘Accept mail for domain’?
- Any other tips or thoughts for this general configuration?
Thanks in advance
