Does everyone host websites on the control panel server or have the control panel completely isolated?
The best practice will be to have a separate server only with CP.
CP replication is coming soon so it will be possible to use 2 servers for CP.
AdamM Do you still run with the minimum specs if you are just running the cp alone? Thought that was pretty hefty for just the CP. 🙂
I am currently using the CP on the same server as the application and mysql roles, because I had set it up that way at the beginning and there's no way to move it right now.
So my recommendation would be, if you are starting from scratch, do separate servers.
mendozal I am currently experimenting and not sure if I should have sites with the cp or not. The specs seem a bit hefty for the cp alone but it does run smoothly.
Separate servers for applications, mail and offcourse backups.
One role per logical server as possible (I'd prefer option for app and db separate).
