Arrow Running Joombla CMS on Debian Sarge 3.1 with ISPConfig

My webserver is configured according Falko’s PERFECT setup for Debian Sarge 3.1.
ISPConfig 2.2.0 is also up and running. Thanks again Falko!

I am interested to run the Joombla CMS system on this server.

Is there an instruction available how to do this in combination with my perfect server with ISPConfig?

Any hints and tips are welcome to me and please give me also advise if there are known problems with this combination of software I wish to run.

Hans

Just create a new web site in ISPConfig (enable PHP, but do not enable PHP Safe Mode), create a MySQL database for the web site, and then proceed with the Joomla installation instructions.

Ok, thanks Falko. It looks not very difficult to me. I will give it a try on my testing server first.

Unhappy

[QUOTE=Hans]I have read the installation instructions at URL http://developer.joomla.org/ under Getting the files, which says for Installing Locally:

---
Unzip the distribution file into a directory under your web server root. If you are using the Apache web server, this is typically c:apache groupapachehtdocs on Windows and /usr/local/apache/htdocs on a POSIX system but it my vary. We are assuming you have a working web server and that you know where to put files to display on the web server.
---

At this point i do not know what to do; they say that i have to put the extracted Joombla files in /usr/local/apache/htdocs.
This is a location under your web server root.
I am using Debian, and my file-structure is different, so i am not sure.
Can anyone tell me where i should drop the files, provided by Joombla?

I am also quiet new to Mysql, can anyone tell me how to setup a Mysql database, which is needed by Joombla?
Joombla will ask for it during the installation.


PLease let me know.

Hans

If you created a web site in ISPConfig, the web server root for that web site is typically something like /var/www/web1/web or /home/www/web43/web, etc., depending on what you chose during the ISPConfig installation (/home/www or /var/www).

You can create the database with ISPConfig. Enable MySQL for the web site, and go to the "Options" tab to create a database.

I choose for /var/www during installation.

So for example /var/www/web1/web could be a site root for a site running Joombla.

Does this mean that the Joombla files must be extracted in every site root and for all sites running Joombla?

Yes, one installation per web site.
