    I would appreciate advice on the following Multi-Server setup (do you have better ideas on a starter multiserver setup?):

    4 servers:
    - Admin (first) server is also the primary DNS server
    - Secondary DNS server (only needs myDNS on it), no ISPConfig
    - Mail server
    - Web Server

    Do I need to install everything on the Admin (first) server or can I just install what I need for admin and obviously myDNS to be a dns server?

    I assume there is a MySQL database that stores the all the ISPConfig data. Are the table formats available?

    Any advice anyone has would be appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

    Just install what you need. In this case apache, php, mysql and mydns.

    ISPConfig uses mysql. The database table definition is in the install/sql/ folder of the installer. But do not install it manually, this is all done by the installer.

    You have to install mysqlm on all nodes. ISPConfig is doing the replication. Do not try to use just one database, it will fail! Install the master in standard mode, then install the slaves in expert mode and select that you want to join the master. Make sure that every node "knows" every other node in dns. The easiest way to achieve this is to add all nodes to the hosts file of all other nodes.
