I am getting VERY frustrated trying to evaluate Virtualmin. Where is the document that fully describes the differences between the GPL and the paid Pro version?
Seems like everything I try to do is not in the GPL version. The ability to run both PHP5 and PHP4 was the big reason I decided to look at Virtualmin in the first place. I have a complex PHP4 site that is in the process of converting to PHP5 but isn’t done yet. So I need to host this site in PHP4 while my other virtual sites use PHP5. Apparently this option is not in GPL and I don’t know enough about Apache to do it myself in the config files.
In fact, if I knew enough to do this in the Apache config files myself, then why would I be using Virtualmin in the first place?
Other examples of "not in the GPL version" include the ability to preview a web site before the DNS is set up (no "Preview website in Webmin" option). And apparently no ability to modify the Apache modules being loaded.
In fact, is seems like every time I search for a problem and try to follow the directions given in the documentation or forums, I discover that the option doesn’t exist in the GPL version.
So much for the GPL version using the “same code base”, etc. I’m really close to just starting over with some other product that I can properly evaluate.
Sorry, but as I said, I’m very frustrated right now and have wasted waaay too much time trying to get this all to work. I am not a linux expert…I am a novice. Which is why I wanted a good control panel application in the first place. But I’m not spending money for anything until I can confirm that it is going to work properly for me.<br><br>Post edited by: zugg, at: 2009/01/07 13:36
