Here you will find how to setup a remote database, there is an example with WordPress but the idea is the same on every web application. <br>https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-set-up-a-remote-database-to-optimize-site-performance-with-mysql <br> <br>For mail server there are some tutorials in Digital Ocean Tutorials section but I haven’t tried any of these. When I was setting up my personal mail server I used this tutorial here with some changes to make it work on Lighttpd web-server: https://rtcamp.com/tutorials/mail/server/postfix-dovecot-ubuntu/

Hi Marino, <br> <br>Thank you very much for your reply. <br> <br>Any tutorials you can suggest for setting the mail and website databases server while the domain/website will be on another server. <br> <br>I’m coming from using mediatemple’s vps for years so everything sounds kind of complex to me at the moment but i’m willing to learn…everything is kind of confused in my mind as until now i was using google apps or live.com and i was editing the dns via plesk …that was on the same vps as the actual website. <br> <br>cheers
