    To any/all who run Joomla on an ISPConfig platform, something to watch for in any related Joomla configs:
    make sure the web root (what apache calls DocumentRoot, what Joomla calls WebRoot) is the 'native' directory, e.g.:
    Code:
    /var/www/domain.tls/web/
    ... not the ispc working path:
    Code:
    /var/www/clients/client1/web9/web/
    Seems obvious, but until we spotted the flaw, it was causing numerous issues, some of them seemingly unrelated.

    Hoping this helps someone else out there...

    What do you mean with "numerous issues" ? I am running several Jommla sites on ISPconfig 3 and have no problem at all?

    have to agree with @Appie Thrasher, we've had several joomla websites running on ispconfig 3 for more than 6 years, using the normal ispconfig (/var/www/clients/client##/web##/web) docroot settings, even use that base path for setting log and tmp paths in joomla's own configuration.php file, none of which has ever caused any issues.

    What I understood from @Gray Consulting message is that if in Joomla (or Wordpress or any other CMS) configuration the home_url and site parameters are given as
    Code:
    /var/www/clients/client1/web9/web/
    it does not work. This is to be expected, the files are in that path but the websites are configured to use
    Code:
    /var/www/domain.tls/web/
