we are currently running several servers hosting Typo3 webspaces. We want to switch the control panel and we think this is a good moment to also change PHP execution from mod_php to fcgi. Virtualmin Pro seems to be a good choice. Up to now I only had a closer look at the GPL version (under Debian 5) and thus there are some fundamental questions that have to be clarified before we are finally convinced that it is the right decision to use VM Pro in future.
Obviously there is no script installer for Typo3 yet. Do you plan to provide one in the near future? Under http://www.virtualmin.com/forums/virtualmin/typo3-installer.html this question remained unanswered up to now.
In the GPL version (always assuming a Debian 5.0 install) suexec’s docroot is set to /home, userdir to public_html/cgi-bin. In Typo3 we need certain add-on applications like ImageMagick, which usually reside under /usr/… . When using the Pro version, would we have to install apps like these in each webspace or would it be possible to implement a configuration that enabled us to deploy a central installation that could be used by all Typo3 webspaces. The same question as regards Typo3 itself: Would it be possible to store the Typo3 libraries in a central place outside the webspaces (so that we could perform a Typo3 version upgrade once for all webspaces)?
Does anyone has some best practices, notes, hints or even warnings concerning the use of Typo3 under VM Pro? I didn’t find much about Typo3 in the forum and I wonder if this is a good sign
Thanks for your answers
