MySQL server changes

The MySQL server is now actually several servers, of which some are so called master servers that can accept writes, and some are read-only replicating servers. To get all benefits from this setup, you can connect to for read-only queries, and for insert/update queries. This will balance read operations over all available servers, and make sure writes go to the current master server.

If having separate connections is not wanted, using just sql.yone.ff:13306 will make sure you are connected to a server that supports write operations. Connecting the default mysql socket is possible, but not recommended, as the proxy software is not too stable yet.

Observe the non-standard server port! Sample connection strings and information can be found in the F.A.Q.
