Joomla and StudyWiz on one Server
I didn't know where to start this thread and if you read it you will understand why.
I have an Xserve which currently serves our School Website (Welcome to Eaton Valley Primary School) running over our Joomla install.
Now we were going to use this for our StudyWiz VLE installation as well. We have been told that this should be fine. I received an email today saying that they need a dedicated Server to run the StudyWiz on. They configure and run a customised Apache install on the Xserve.
They have asked the following:
So my question is, are they correct? Would there be a problem running 2 sites side by side on the same port number? I'm not too sure of this one.
Apologies for the delayed response!
Unfortunately I believe we will have a problem with the server setup you have detailed below. Studywiz requires its own server for installation that does not share resources with any other applications. We need to configure Studywiz to guarantee a level of service and we are unable to achieve this on a server running other applications. Furthermore the Studywiz is quite a thorough one and we may install services or make changes that impact on your existing applications.
If it won't be possible to provide a dedicated server for hosting Studywiz we may need to look at hosting your deployment for you. As far as I know its not possible to run two different Web Services on the same machine even if they have separate IP addresses as the port (80) will be in use by two different Web Services.
Please let us know your thoughts on how best to proceed from here
