    Any errors in the log files from apache or the syslog? Also check the user_beancounters, most likely you hit any limits that causes these problems.

    I'am useing openvz for several servers and ispconfig 3 + several cms systems work fin. As proxmox uses openvz as virtualisation system too, it should work.

    Nothing in Apache or Syslog files.
    I found this in my brand new website logs...

    [Fri Jun 05 19:00:16 2009] [error] [client] File does not exist: /var/www/clients/client1/web1/web/index.php
    [Fri Jun 05 19:35:37 2009] [error] [client] (13)Permission denied: file permissions deny server access: /var/www/clients/client1/web1/web/administrator/components/com_extplorer/images/eXtplorer.gif, referer:

    To fix the perms I did the usual chmod's on files/folders and tmp folder.
    It seems that everytime something 'new' is installed (like eXtplorer) new files are installed with insufficient permission and I have to manually fix the perms afterwards.

    I'm not sure how to check the 'user_beancounters' in Proxmox/OpenVZ

    IN ISPCOnfig 3 you dont have to change any permissions for Joomla as long as you used the correct user to install it (the admin user of the website) or uploaded it with FTP.

    cat /proc/user_beancounters

    That could be it.
    Since the su command does not seem to work in the Container I have always used root to install Joomla.

    It looks like every time a user uploads a picture it gets minimal (rw) permissions. Then I have to manually give read permissions to it.

    drwxr-xr-x 2 web4 client2 4.0K 2009-06-10 08:07 .
    drwxr-xr-x 6 web4 client2 4.0K 2009-06-10 08:03 ..
    -rw-r--r-- 1 web4 client2 2.2K 2009-06-10 08:03 2160_80.jpg
    -rw------- 1 web4 client2 2.3K 2009-06-10 08:07 2161_80.jpg

    Ok. Looks like it's in the suPHP.
    If I change to fast-CGI uploads work fine.

    I have a similar issue

    I completed the Perfect Server Setup using SuSE 11.1 with no errors, I create a Client User, a Website, a Database and FTP user.

    I uploaded the files by FTP with the user I create for it on ISPC3 and installed Joomla and all was fine until I try to change the joomla's global configuration.

    A new conf file is generated and named "configuration.1 instead configuration.php I tried to chmod "configuration.php" but I get 550 error "Operation not permitted"

    The site is running php cgi ssi fast-cgi+suExec

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Take a look at the error log of the website to get the detailed error message.

    Ok, but where is that? Just found the System Log under Monitor section of ISPC
