What were your "showstopper" problem(s)?

Could you please elaborate on your "showstopper" issues?

I see that you posted a couple of issues on the forums (and apologies that I have been slow to respond) but it seems that both of the issues you posted, you managed to resolve. So it is unclear to me what your final reason to give up on TurnKey was. Or was it simply a case of "death by a thousand papercuts"?

Even if you prefer to go with vanilla Debian (which I can understand if you found TurnKey painful) it would be really useful for us to understand your issues so we can improve TurnKey for other future users.

Regardless, thanks for giving TurnKey a try. Although it's sad to see you go and hear that you had such a poor experience. We put a lot of effort and time into TurnKey and it's always disappointing when people such as yourself decide it's more trouble than it's worth. :(

[update] Was it configuring your own domain that was the issue (as per the post you responded to)? If so it should not make any difference! TurnKey is built on top of Debian and we use Apache2 from the Debian repos. Beyond our SSL hardening and our custom default site config (which you would normally replace anyway) nothing should be significantly different.

my problem

yes  i  would prefer  using  turnkey  its the best i have tried i have  tried  lots of systems,

i set  up my  domain and try  using  it  but  i can only using it  local

creating  virtual host is not  working

Thanks for your patience and kind words.

Ok great.

How about you start a new thread and detail what you are trying to do, what the desired result is, what you have tried already and what the actual result was. I'm not always the fastest to reply, but I'll definitely help you out as much as I can.
