    I've downloaded and installed the Plesk demo (linux) and was very impressed. I have some questions about the software before considering it's implementation.

    * Can the underlying MySQL database be moved to a seperate server?

    * Can the smtp/pop/dns authentication settings be deployed to seperate servers?

    * Can a daily list of new accounts and resellers be exported as XML?

    * Can events be set up to trigger shell scripts based on account setup actions?

    * I have some custom apache rewrites I need on the primary Plesk-enabled webserver. Is there a mechanism for me to add these or is it safe to edit the default httpd.conf?

    * Is there documentation on scaling an Plesk-generated configurations across multiple smtp/pop/dns/web servers without using Virtuozzo?

    * How does one enable the FTP daemon? The FTP daemon appeared to be listening via xinetd, but would close the connection immediately when using an FTP client.

    I checked the documentation and am going through the forums now. Any assistance is appreciated.

    * Can the underlying MySQL database be moved to a seperate server?

    No, not yet.

    * Can the smtp/pop/dns authentication settings be deployed to seperate servers?

    No, not yet.

    You can use plesk API which is XML-based to do this I guess.

    * Can events be set up to trigger shell scripts based on account setup actions?

    Yes, using event manager.

    * I have some custom apache rewrites I need on the primary Plesk-enabled webserver. Is there a mechanism for me to add these or is it safe to edit the default httpd.conf?

    You can add these via vhost.conf and vhost_ssl.conf files - see the advanced features manual.

    * Is there documentation on scaling an Plesk-generated configurations across multiple smtp/pop/dns/web servers without using Virtuozzo?

    You can't do this with or without Virtuozzo - Plesk Expand is the product to watch for as it's to include such functionality in future.

    * How does one enable the FTP daemon? The FTP daemon appeared to be listening via xinetd, but would close the connection immediately when using an FTP client.

    It should work - check firewall rules.
