    Question About mysql

    I have a basic question. Please put me on the way. I need to use the same server for zimbra and an application running at apache with php and mysql. I successfully installed and configured apache with the js package, but my question is: Can I use the currently mysql installed by zimbra or need to install a new one? Can anybody explain how to do that?
    Thanks in advance

    You need to use a seperate instance of MySQL, you should not use the Zimbra MySQL for anything else. You'll just need to install MySQL for you needs, the Zimbra MySQL uses a non-standard port and shouldn't cause a conflict.

    If two mysql servers can't get conflict, why does the installation guide say we should remove our existing mysql server before install ?

    I am also waiting for this answer to install zimbra.

    I need to use my existing mysql database to do many things. So if I can't keep it, I won't install zimbra even if I really want to have it in my box.

    Thank you very much

    You can use MySQL installed by Zimbra for your personal RDBMS needs.

    Please search the forums on how to retrieve the password. You can use the MySQL root password in Zimbra for creating additional databases and users.

    You cannot (easily) use existing MySQL server for Zimbra.

    You can keep your existing MySQL server for whatever you want. Zimbra uses port 7306 for MySQL.

    Remember, for using MySQL from Zimbra you need to explicitly specify the socket.

    Again. Forums have this information.

    They don't conflict, the Zimbra instance uses a different port. I run a MySQL instance on my Zimbra server - no problem. I would advise you (or anyone) against using the Zimbra MySQL for your own db.
