Release focus: security, usability, bugfixes and updates


  • added SSL support
  • added postfix MTA (bound to localhost) to allow sending of email from Joomla (e.g., password recovery). Also added webmin-postfix module for convenience.
  • prevent Joomla upgrades from recreating apache config symlink (bugfix)
  • changed ownership of Joomla folders to allow extensions to upload/install, and set up dpkg-statoverride permission changes so upgrades won't mess them up (bugfix)
  • mysql-related improvements
    • include PhpMyAdmin (listening on port 12322 - uses SSL)
    • set empty mysql root password in live/demo mode (for convenience)
