Joomla! multiplied - How to run Multi-Sites - JandBeyond 2014

  1. 1. #jab14 | Joomla! multiplied - How to run Multi-Sites | @viktorvogel JOOMLA! MULTIPLIED How to run Multi-Sites
  2. 2. #jab14 | Joomla! multiplied - How to run Multi-Sites | @viktorvogel Note: This is a shortened version of the entire presentation!
  3. 3. #jab14 | Joomla! multiplied - How to run Multi-Sites | @viktorvogel Viktor Vogel • Work with Joomla! since 2005 • Private project Kubik-Kubik Joomla! Extensions http://joomla-extensions.kubik-rubik.de/ • Employee at 1&1 Internet as their Joomla! specialist http://www.1and1.com/
  4. 4. #jab14 | Joomla! multiplied - How to run Multi-Sites | @viktorvogel MULTI-SITE FUNCTIONALITY IN THE JOOMLA! PROJECT • Multi-Site Working Group • Meetings in 2011 and 2012 • Documentation: Multi-site Design Options • http://docs.joomla.org/Multi-site_Design_Options • Group is currently not active • PLT Contact: David Hurley
  5. 5. #jab14 | Joomla! multiplied - How to run Multi-Sites | @viktorvogel RESULTS OF MEETINGS - CONCEPTS • 2011 (JoomlaDays New York) • ACL Approach • Layer Approach • 2012 (JandBeyond) • Shared Program Folder, Separate Databases • Shared Files, Single Database
  6. 6. #jab14 | Joomla! multiplied - How to run Multi-Sites | @viktorvogel ACL APPROACH • Also known as Seblod Approach (Sebastien) • Site divided in sub-sites using ACL groups • Mapping of URLs to a logical site to a group • Separation of modules, menu items and plugins difficult • Could be solved by using View Access levels • Or by adding ACL permissions for these entities
  7. 7. #jab14 | Joomla! multiplied - How to run Multi-Sites | @viktorvogel SITE LAYER APPROACH • Logical layer between Global Configuration and the component options • Assignment of component items to sites, controlled by ACL permission rights • Consequences • System is more complex but easier to maintain • Modification of existing extensions is necessary
  8. 8. #jab14 | Joomla! multiplied - How to run Multi-Sites | @viktorvogel SHARED PROGRAM FOLDER AND SEPARATE DATABASES • Site setup with a separate application to map needed data • Few setup files for each site instance, shared core files • Updates of 3rd party through Site Manager, updates are specifically installed for each site instance • No content sharing, except of copying it with application • Could be achieved with minor changes to the CMS
  9. 9. #jab14 | Joomla! multiplied - How to run Multi-Sites | @viktorvogel SHARED FILES, SINGLE DATABASE • A single Joomla! instance can have multiple domains • Each domain has different menu items • Approach can be implemented by Virtual Domains • Template assignment, content sharing • Single point of software updates • Separation of user access only partly possible with ACL • Customer access to backend not recommended
  10. 10. #jab14 | Joomla! multiplied - How to run Multi-Sites | @viktorvogel FOCUS ON SHARING DATA, NOT SHARING PROGRAM FILES • Agreement in 2012 at the JAB • Most important priority is to share data between entirely separate Joomla! instances • Single instance with same files is not more in the focus • Messaging could be achieved with a restful approach • Current status • Working group is inactive, no working solution out of the box • Multi-sites will not be provided in the near future by Joomla! core
  11. 11. #jab14 | Joomla! multiplied - How to run Multi-Sites | @viktorvogel DEMO EXAMPLE WITH VIRTUAL DOMAINS • Approach: Shared Files, Single Database • Free extension by Michael Liebler, Roman Teske • Multi-domain capability for Joomla without changing the Joomla core files and tables • Specific designs, (default) languages, home page content and navigation. • http://janguo.de/lang-de/joomla-25-higher/virtual- domains-joomla-2-5.html
  12. 12. #jab14 | Joomla! multiplied - How to run Multi-Sites | @viktorvogel DOMAINS SETUP FOR VIRTUAL DOMAINS • Same server • Each domain must reside on the same server and must be accessible from the same IP • Same folder • The webserver must point each domain to the same folder • No redirection • To achieve that goal, you must not use a redirection like .htaccess oder by frame.
  13. 13. #jab14 | Joomla! multiplied - How to run Multi-Sites | @viktorvogel DOMAINS SETUP FOR VIRTUAL DOMAINS 2 Source: Virtual Domains Documentation
  14. 14. #jab14 | Joomla! multiplied - How to run Multi-Sites | @viktorvogel DOMAINS SETUP FOR VIRTUAL DOMAINS 3 • 3 subdomains on the same server • Each subdomains points to the same folder • No redirections, only assignments
  15. 15. #jab14 | Joomla! multiplied - How to run Multi-Sites | @viktorvogel BACKEND VIEW OF VIRTUAL DOMAINS • 3 entries for the subdomains • 3 different templates • 3 different articles assigned to the subdomains
  16. 16. #jab14 | Joomla! multiplied - How to run Multi-Sites | @viktorvogel OUTPUT OF DEMO INSTALLATION
  17. 17. #jab14 | Joomla! multiplied - How to run Multi-Sites | @viktorvogel LIMITATIONS WITH VIRTUAL DOMAINS • Constellation only suitable for small, non-complex websites • Encountered limitations • (Core) Components are not designed to be used in a multi-website (separation of items doesn’t work properly) • Many components can only be used exclusively for one domain • With ACL some restrictions can be made possible but not enough to separate all strictly • Plugins are executed on every domain equally
