I was wondering if anyone knew how to install this application (ladistribution) in multiple directories from a single directory using symlinks.
i.e. from /srv/ladistribution make symlinks into /var/www/username and /var/www/username2
I am responsible of a mass-hosting service where this would facilitate my users experience using this tool.
My issue is that zend seems to detect the origin directory (in this example /srv/ladistribution) as the "home" and creates it's files in there (for example dist/users.json).
Is there a way to tell zend that it's home is in /var/www/username?
multiple installations using symbolic links (symlinks)(5 posts) (2 voices)
I would not recommend this setup at all, because each ladistribution installation (for one user) is expected to be independent, and should not share its files with the others. Specifically, external libraries are installed and updated on the fly, within each installation.
There are way to mutualize big libraries (like zend framework) between the different installations but it should be more the exception than the rule.
thanks for the response
all right, so ladistribution automatically updates itself?
This solution is not really for space efficiency, but rather because most people usually install a webapp and then leave it as-is, which is a security risk when for example one has joomla installations that are 4 years old.
Normally, the user is notified that updates are available and he's invited to update everything (la distribution core, apps, dependencies).
But, as an hosting provider, you can update everything in the background for him (with a cron job for instance). We provide CLI tools to do so.
all right, thanks for the info, i'll try and think of how to integrate ladistribution then.
thanks for the quick response, and congratulations on the great job!
