    I want to change ispconfig DB from current local to remote mysql server, in order to test, I first change the db setting in below config file to a wrong db setting to see if it breaks the ispconfig. so strange that it does not break it and I can still click around without any error. so strange

    ISPConfig 3 Interface
    Location of the config file is:

    ISPConfig 3 Server
    Location of the config file is:

    MySQL root password used to create new databases is stored:
    for this config setting, it's not pointing to any DB, what is this for?
    $clientdb_host = 'localhost';
    $clientdb_user = 'root';
    $clientdb_password = 'root';

    I did this test long time ago on new servers but never did try it on active servers. Generally it's the same as you install in an expert mode for slave ISPConfig server, where I think after dumping all database to the new server, you may need to add the remote users credentials to it so that they can access the database properly.
