What is Joomla?

Joomla is an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enables you to build Web sites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla the most popular Web site software available. Best of all, Joomla is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone.

Joomla Hosting

What's a content management system (CMS)?

A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your Web site, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don't have to.

 

What Joomla! can do?

Joomla is used all over the world to power Web sites of all shapes and sizes. For example:

  • Corporate Web sites or portals
  • Corporate intranets and extranets
  • Online magazines, newspapers, and publications
  • E-commerce and online reservations
  • Government applications
  • Small business Web sites
  • Non-profit and organizational Web sites
  • Community-based portals
  • School and church Web sites
  • Personal or family homepages

 

How HostsVault Hosting is Best for Joomla Hosting?

In a recent article by Joomla developers -- How to secure Joomla --They have mentioned some security tips --

1) Register_Globals ON -- This is big security hole -- HostsVault has all servers with register_globals OFF.

2) Permission Issues -- (A common issue with hosting companies running PHP as Apache Module)

HostsVault runs php in secure environment for joomla accounts -- We have installed suPHP which completely resolves permission issues.

 

What is suPhp ?

With non-suPHP configurations, PHP runs as an Apache Module it executes as the user/group of the webserver which is usually "nobody", "httpd" or "apache". Under this mode, files or directories that you require your php scripts to be able to write to need 777 permissions (read/write/execute at user/group/world level). This is not very secure because it allows the webserver to write to the file, it also allows anyone else to read or write to the file. Under suPHP configurations, PHP running as a CGI with "suexec" enabled (su = switch user, allowing one user to "switch" to another if authorized) - Your php scripts now execute under your own user/group level. Files or directories that you require your php scripts to be able to write to no longer need to have 777 permissions. In fact, 777 permissions are no longer allowed, having 777 permissions on your scripts or the directories they reside in will not run and will instead cause a "500 internal server error" when attempting to execute them, this is done to protect you from someone abusing your scripts. Your scripts and directories can now, only have a maximum of 755 permissions (read/write/execute by you, read/execute by everyone else).

    12/28/2012 - HostsVault System Outage

    Hi Everybody,

    On 12-28-12 we had a provider outage of 12 hours. There is a problem with their Fiber uplinks that they're in the process of resolving. Here is the message from the provider:

    As many of you know, we have been experiencing intermittent Internet Traffic delays throughout the day. These delays have caused periodic latency and in some cases short outages. Our technicians are diligently working with our Fiber Network providers and upstream network providers to identify and resolve the problem.

    We appreciate your patience and apologize for this.

    We will keep you posted.

    As of right now 12-28-12 at 927pm PST they are still having problems. They're working on it and we'll be up and down while they do so.

    I assure you that our servers are 100% functional hardware wise and this is strictly a provider/networking problem. It affects every customer this Data Center has and is not isolated to just our systems.

    Thank you for your continued patience as we await a final resolution from them. Once I have the 100% "all clear" alert from them I'll pass it along. At this time we're hopeful it's been resolved but will remain on alert until we hear from them.

    As always please submit a support ticket with any questions.

    Thank you all.

    Greg
