We have JIRA running on 2 instances, one for web frontend and one for mysql. we are currently evaluating confulence, which i have installed as a stand alone instance. its connected to JIRA via the navigation link in JIRA and all the JIRA users are accesible in confluence.
whats the best practice when this goes to production? should i install a fresh instance in the same configuration as JIRA is installed (web and db seperated) ?
is it recommanded to have JIRA and confluence share the mysql instance ? meaning :
1 instance for JIRA web
1 instance for confluence web
1 instance for mysql, serving both JIRA and confluence.
Create different schema in mysql instance. If you follow the directions from Atlassian, when you run "Create user", it is essentially creating a separate schema. And when you configure the database for Confluence instance, the username/password is the schema name + password.
Refer this document for Creating User and Setting Database Set up your MySQL database and user
The configuration strategy you're planning is fine, it is recommended to have Confluence and JIRA running on different servers, and you can use the same database server for both, but make sure, just like Taha mentioned, that you use different schemas on MySQL for JIRA and Confluence.
