I’m buying a new server from kimsufi.ie next month, and I’m wondering if the following setup is do-able with Cloudmin?
Basically, I will get a pre-configured version of ubuntu 8.04, with a default hostname and IP from ovh, onto which I will add 3 domains, with seperate IP’s each. I want to host each domain (including it’s subdomains) in seperate Xen instances, with the websites stored in /var/www/example.com, /var/www/test.example.com, etc, owned by www-data (apache user), with my /home partition NFS mounted from the main ovh server into each of the Xen instances, with users shared accross the domains via LDAP (assuming I can adapt the old LDAP tutorial for Virtualmin to Cloudmin)
I know this may seem a silly setup to some peeople, but I have my reasons, primarily that the main web apps I’m using are rtorrent + wtorrent (want them both running under www-data, easiest to run from /var/www), xdccparser, possibly a forum, and I don’t want to be clogging up the /home folder with websites, I want to quota all websites elsewhere (I will probably make /var it’s own partition to ease this), I only want the /home folders to contain user’s torrents and such.
So, there’s my question, can I create this sort of setup with Cloudmin? Will it be hard to do (considering I use Virtualmin atm, all logins running via LDAP so I can link my system users to my web apps)? Is this sorta what Cloudmin is supposed to do (excluding the /home network mount)?
Lastly, if this is feasible, and anyone wnats to drop a few pointers, I would appreciate that, and I might even write up a guide on the setup afterwards
