Author: Bernard Sfez - Published

In this express tutorial I鈥檒l explain how to setup the Lightsail account and server (instance), install Debian, install MariaDB and different PHP version, install Webmin and Virtuamin control panel, setup and use Git, set an SSL certificat and finally publish your Tiki Wiki website online.

Customise your software just the way you like it

Author: Bernard Sfez - Published

During the last years small/medium businesses managers and employees installed more and more productivity applications working from home. Once fired up, the user often grabs the opportunity to personalise their app experience through the limited "Settings" option that almost every piece of software is built with. This is fantastic compared to what the software industry had to offer a decade ago, however those applications parameters are rarely flexible enough to fit exactly how you or your small/medium business work.

Don't you agree that things are better when they are the way you want ?
And here comes the yogurt analogy; You can buy one ready to eat with a taste, a colour and a consistence that will be the same for millions of yogurt OR you can make your, with the exact amount of sugar, the little healthy ingredient and the taste you need or want.

The solutions I propose are by nature and definition ready-to-use to avoid business disruption but there are also completely configurable and customisable. This because I use Tiki, an all-in-the-box platforms that require no hard coding and which work on a modular basis to allow granularity of settings and personalisation of interface at the level of a specialised product. Before implementation and after first usages, via a carefully executed methodology and a bit of tailoring you'll be closer to your perfect solution, empowering your business, team and users. With a solid experience in customer satisfactory I will help you to manage your business the way you want.

Optimization advice to reduce memory consumption on a Virtualmin server

Author: Bernard Sfez - Published

With Virtualmin installed on your server, running fine and updated regularly it is time to optimise.
It is important to keep your system healthy and efficient it is a good practice to check from time to time what is going on with gauge and graph.
Plus your server run one or several different software (Tiki CMS, Wordpress, Laracast, Prestashop, etc) and you may also use different version of those applications that need different requirement to work. In time you will accumulate several version of PHP and find out that you don鈥檛 need some functionality you previously set.

How install Tiki Wiki after PHP8 is installed by Virtualim

Author: Bernard Sfez - Published

PHP8 is coming and developers of major softwares like Tiki started to rewrite and adapt code that will be released in the future stable versions.
It is already included in the last Virtualmin upgrade and will be used by default for the Linux Command Line Interface (CLI). If you install a Tiki 21 or a Tiki 22 this may trick the CLI setup.sh install script.
But as it is documented at the Tiki Dev Composer page it is possible to tell the script which PHP to use. To do so you have to give the path of the CLI you want to use.
It is /usr/bin/phpversion as installed by virtualmin you can check the content of the usr/bin directory to find the right folder name for the version you want to use ls -l /usr/bin/
In my case I have several version installed and using mainly Tiki 22 now I use PHP7.4 so the complete command will be:

sh setup.sh -p /usr/bin/php7.4

Once the install script complete, don't forget to set permission (f) and then you can start to configure your Tiki and set its database.
