    Noticed that the latest cPanel DNS only installs mysql and runs it.
    I don't think this is needed for DNS - so just wondering if we can unload it.

    I dont see any reason for it to run - take ram - cpu etc

    Please advise,

    MySQL is necessary if you want cphulkd (brute force protection) functionality on your DNS-Only server.
